La Valse de Camille Claudel
Camille Claudel’s Valse is the first in the Études-Statues cycle, whose inspiration is provoked each time by the performer. In fact, it’s the performer who suggests a statue to me, and the play of resonances between his or her choice, our personalities, and the worlds that meet, all lead to music.
So Carine Zarifian suggested this waltz, and I structured the piece in three successive moments: a man, a woman, and a final waltz as a harmonic and symbolic fusion. I worked around formal and rhythmic complementarity, keeping in mind waltzes that run to the abyss, as in Berlioz, Mahler or, in another genre, Brel…
In the end, this Waltz is a meeting in the present moment between two individualities, a choice to dance, without thinking about yesterday or tomorrow.
