Duet for two string trios is a coming together of pure dance and music, lyrical, intense and disruptive, like the times we live in.

Duet for two string trios

Claire Croizé

Duet for two string trios is a new creation by Claire Croizé, made on the invitation of and together with the Goeyvaerts String Trio. The work is based on two string trios by the contemporary classical composer Charles Wuorinen, whose history spans half a century: the first one was composed in 1968 and the second one in 2018, when the Goeyvaerts String Trio presented it in the Guggenheim New York. Emmi Väisänen and Jason Respillieux, two of Claire’s regular dancers, add their voice to the composition. In Duet for two string trios pure dance and music come together in a piece that is both intimate and full of lyricism, intense and disruptive, like the times that we live in. Wuorinen’s music, influenced by Stravinsky and related to Schoenberg, transports us to a world that is hard to categorize. This world, complex and confusing as it may be, makes it possible for dance to exist.
