The elevated cloud of a dream
Music theatre work for electronics, Cello and guitar
performed by Wen Chin Fu on Cello and Lam Lai on Guitar
‘Space is elevated, the ground is elevated, even time is elevated.’ Robert Schumann wrote a set of thirteen pieces of music, ‘Scenes of Childhood’, for piano in 1838. Movement No. 7 of this work, Träumerei, is one of Schumann’s best-known pieces. In 1926, cellist Pablo Casals made a gramophone recording of this piece. The elevated cloud of a dream compiles the memoir of this work of Schumann. Sound, the movement of the performers and space are braided with the stream of time.
