Danza Petrificada

Danza Petrificada

for orchestra


  • Instrumentation: orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
description
Maestro Muti’s request was that the work would, in some way, pay tribute to Mexico on the 200th anniversary of that country’s revolution and the 100th anniversary of Mexico’s independence. The title comes from a beautiful poem by Octavio Paz in which he describes a Mexican village. ‘[…] festin de formas, danza petrificada bajo las nubes que hacen y se deshacen y no acaban de hacerse, siempre en tránsito hacis su forma venidera.’(’[…] a banquet of forms, a petrified dance under the clouds that make and unmake and never stop making themselves, always in transit toward their future forms.’). Such a wonderful description of the phenomenon of music itself! Bernard Rands
