Poetry, slowness and emotions

This video totally captured me. As a musician, I can’t help talking about the power of this music; C major does look peaceful. The choreography & dancers totally match in this breathtaking moment of absolute poetry. The dancers are emotions, flesh, love, beauty, struggles, dreams…

All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your being and so distorts you.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

  1. I have never heard this Shostakovich piece before. The combination of the eerie music and slow movements is hypnotic.
