WINTERREISE

Video/ live performance

75' aprox.

 

Franz Schubert’s “Winterreise”, based on poems by Wilhelm Müller, recounts a solitary man’s journey through stunning winter landscapes into deep despair.

 

The images work as a contrast to the music and texts of the songs, framing the musicians and detaching them from their mere presence on stage. I was interested by these resonances and how they allow the public to re-signify Schubert’s melodic genius and Wilhelm Müller’s poetry.

 

The live performance was conducted by Ensemble Précipitations at the theater  Espace Pierre Cardin, Paris, France
