DANSES PROFANES

  • Vienna, Austria Klaviergalerie (map)

What better place than Vienna, city of Alma Mahler herself, for our second residency?

It was an honour to perform in this culturally rich city which has always been a meeting place for numerous artists, such as Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka, Alban Berg, Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schoenberg, Stefan Zweig, and so many others.

We aimed to rediscover the "classical" repertoire, this time with works by Debussy, Dvořák, Martinů, Poulenc and Ravel, in surprising chamber music settings:

Gustav Klimt - The Dancer

Gustav Klimt - The Dancer

Claude Debussy
Danse sacrée et danse profane

Antonín Dvořák
Bagatelles, Op. 47

Francis Poulenc
Trio for oboe, bassoon and piano

Bohuslav Martinů
Quartet in C-Major for clarinet, horn, cello and side drum

Maurice Ravel
Pavane pour une infante défunte for flute and harp

Maurice Ravel
Ma mère l'Oye [arr. David Walter]

You're not reading incorrectly: no "Strauss waltzes", but "Danses Profanes" for this New Year’s concert!

We would like to thank the KLAVIERgalerie and our plentiful audience for their warm welcome!
