String Quartet

Hello God!

Thank You for Igor Stravinsky. The composer is great. For this Friday’s night I have chosen his Three Pieces for String Quartet. The music is amazing and, mmm, a little specific. You can not expect from Stravinsky light harmonious trills and passages. He surprises by droll, mercurial, ultra-modern sounds and adventurous use of color and scoring. Violins are happily laughing because viola and cello are mechanically and funny “clock working”. I am playfully laughing in violins company. 

Viktor and Rolf created the String Quartet too. Together with Stravinsky Victor and Rolf are great on my scene. Amy Lowell, a poet, is declaiming her poetry: Stravinsky’s Three Pieces “Grotesques”, for String Quartet: Second Movement. I invite you to enjoy with me this great composition.

Violin

Pale violin music whiffs across the moon,

A pale smoke of violin music blows over the moon,

Violin2

Cherry petals fall and flutter,

And the white Pierrot,

Violin1

Wreathed in the smoke of the violins,

Splashed with cherry petals falling, falling,

VictorandRolf

Claws a grave for himself in the fresh earth

With his finger-nails.

Thank you for sharing with me the pleasure of mixing fashion, poetry and music. Have a beautiful weekend!
