Anna Vinnitskaya celebrates dance, or rather the dances of composers from very different periods and styles: Ravel, Shostakovich and Widmann. 'In all these works, you can feel in some way transported to the world of childhood. Because I believe the childhoods of each of these three composers are reflected there', says the pianist. In his Valses nobles et sentimentales, Ravel paid tribute to Schubert. A few years later, he transcribed for solo piano his ballet score La Valse, in which 'billowing clouds part from time to time, allowing us to glimpse waltzing couples'. Shostakovich's Dances of the Dolls make me think of the Soviet cartoons of my childhood', says Anna Vinnitskaya. 'They also remind me of Mozart: they are as bright as diamonds, sincere and beautiful.' The Zirkust�nze (Circus Dances) composed by J�rg Widmann in 2012, a brilliant kaleidoscope of emotions and parodies, round off the programme.
