The shadows of Vienna : Programme suggestion

1024 669 Beatrice Berrut

Behind the splendour of the Imperial city, hidden in between the pulse of a waltz, crawling behind the golden curtains of the palaces, the other face of Vienna shows up. The dark one, the tortured one, the one that Freud will unveil. It makes a brief appearance in one of Mozart’s only works composed in minor, and asserts himself mercilessly in Schönberg’s long night, or in Mahler’s ethereal Adagietto, works that almost seem to already come from another world, that of shadows.

“As death, when we come to consider it closely, is the true goal of our existence, I have formed during the last few years such close relationships with this best and truest friend of mankind that death’s image is not only no longer terrifying to me, but is indeed very soothing and consoling.”

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart ( 1756 – 1791 )
