by Duon Nadàn

“On this record which is a world tour, an incurable conflict seems to be resolved: it is rare to find dancers who understand the great musical repertoire, and it is also difficult to find musicians who know the language of the body. A rare and precious parenthesis has been that of
early twentieth century and the Russian Ballets. Then nothing more: just a great misunderstanding. But the collection of these dances, beautifully presented here, tells us another story, another possibility: the first performer of the Brahmsian dances was Clara, yes, really Clara
Schumann. Being able to be there, with them, looking at their eyes, the language of their faces, listening to their words: this is probably why these dances were “absolute”, unrelated and do not think of any kind of bodily execution. The language of affects, a real one
theory, it was for them (also Robert of course) a great dance of the spirit. We mentioned a trip around the world: this trip has two main goals, Vienna and Paris, the two capitals of music over the time span that covers this record, which is as wide as it is intense.
Music and dances that meet almost all the necessities of life: certain dancing (a waltz), hunting, boating (sailing to be precise), loving, sleeping. A true apotheosis of dance: Wagner used this definition, as is well known, for Beethoven’s seventh symphony, for a specific purpose. Wagner wanted to “justify” to the ignorant the “oddities” found in the score. Here the oddities find rest in the dance: evidently that is the place of the impossible, and of the beautiful also, of a Weill that is dedicated to the tango or of a Spanish-speaking Moszkowski. Of smiling in suffering “.
