Abstract. For the first time in Ukrainian musicology, an attempt was made at a creative portrait of the composer Maryna Denysenko-Sapmaz, the main stages of formation of her creative personality were outlined, a panoramic review of significant works in her creative biography was offered. Analytical observations allowed generalizations about the orientations of her musical aesthetics, including the postmodern worldview, the tendency to combine neo-styles, openness to technological experiments and avant-garde research in various composition techniques, synthesizing the principles of European and Eastern musical thinking, using new performing techniques. instruments and voices, paying great attention to the spatial qualities of timbre and sound. A special feature of M. Denysenko-Sapmaz’s aesthetics is the presence of the Ukrainian national element in her works in various aspects from direct citation of folk music epic, author’s adaptations of Ukrainian carols and Christmas songs in the early period to more indirect forms of work with folklore material in the mature period of creativity such as stylization, input of specific Ukrainian instruments to the score, special lyrical intonation which originated in Ukrainian songs.
