Petr Wajsar 8 Movements for a Fan

Premiere: Vršovické Mana Theatre, November 12, 2012
Sophie Knittl – recitation

The small melodrama 8 Movements for a Fan was inspired by a compilation of poems by the French dramatist and poet Paul Claudel (1868 – 1955). The book of poems A Hundred Movements for a Fan is a modern form of Japanese miniature poems called ‘haiku’ each charged with individual philosophical messages. Each miniature corresponds with a Japanese symbol and its melody forms the basis for the musical material of this composition. The orchestration of this piece is the same as Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, with an enlarged percussion section.
