To place in parallel music and body – with all its movement – makes it difficult to imagine if it’s the dance that reveals the intrinsic characteristics of music, as if it would translate it, or if it’s music that praises the movements of the body and directs it in a musical gesture. Music makes feelings visible, movements real: we listen to the music, we create dance.
In 2020, when the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth was celebrated, The Late String Quartets became the main conductor of the choreography ‑ a choice dictated by its complexity, contrasts, poetic, the logic of composition exposed by an irascible man and immersed in deafness. This relationship between the human being and music, becomes even more literal and visible with the live interpretation of the Matosinhos String Quartet.
