Franz Schubert’s Divertissements on Hungarian and French motifs are two of his most important piano duets. Not only do both feature in this evening concert, they are also programmed – in a natural and logical combination – alongside French and Hungarian literature. . Paul Valéry’s dialogue “L’Âme et la Danse” was published in 1923. It presents dance as a symbol of the creative process and the dancer as the embodiment of the idea. So in effect both stand for the concept of the pure spirit and its metamorphoses, serving as a delightful counterpoint to the dotted rhythms – light in places, forceful in others – heard in Schubert’s “à la française”. “Erdenbürger und Pilger” by Nobel prizewinner Imre Kertész is a gripping telling of the Cain and Abel fratricide, and an excellent fit for Schubert’s epic, fateful D 818.
