Butterflies and music: Robert Schumann / Sufjan Stevens

Community and ForumBlogButterflies and music: Robert Schumann / Sufjan Stevens

Lev Bely, 01.12.2012 17:00

Robert Schumann's suite of piano pieces “Papillons, Op. 2” written in 1831 was inspired by Jean Paul's novel “Die Flegeljahre”. The masquerade from the last scene is brilliantly played by Claudio Arrau, great Chilean pianist also known as a best interpreter of Schumann's music.

Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and reputed experimentalist Sufjan Stevens doesn't seem to lack courage to try anything new as he easily varies styles from disco to folk and electronica, studies the oboe and English horn, makes his own films and provides soundtracks to other's, tours all over the world, improvises song names to get eventually “The Vivian Girls Are Visited In The Night By Saint Dargarius And His Squadron Of Benevolent Butterflies” and even cites the Bible. True peace dove.
