A short clip with images that i made last summer in Civitanova Dance Festival, Italy
I used three Panasonic ag-hpx171 for live recording (not showed in this version) and a canon 5d for backstage images.
In the performance there were projections made by Studio Vertov, Milan, recorded in Rome one month before the premiere.
Death and the Maiden
arrangement for string orchestra
Emanuele De Maria
Luca Scarzella, Michele Innocente, Anna Frigo, Roberto Barbierato
Death and the Maiden' - the famous quartet in D minor by Franz Schubert later transcribed for a string orchestra by Gustav Mahler - by the young choreographer Paolo Santilli whose dramatic development is similar in style to that of Riccardo Reim. The famous piece by Schubert/Mahler was inspired by a ballad by Mathias Claudius which incorporates an artistic theme (iconographical more than literary) which is rooted in the Renaissance and recurrent in the Germanic tradition. A young girl in the prime of her life meets Death who invites her to follow him exorcising her fears with gentle words: "Give me your hand beautiful creature, I am your friend, do not be afraid, you'll sleep softly in my arms ...
