Ondřej Štochl > Blue - Innocent and Fragile
Premiere: Salvator Church, December 5, 2011
Tereza Horáková - violin, Anton Zhdanovich - vibraphone
Blue is the colour of a clear sky and a clear mind as well. It symbolizes peace, settling all debts with what and who is around us and with our own
conscience. We all need to find some solution for our actions and their discordance with our image of ourselves. We all confess in our own ways.
When I work with children, I cannot help asking a question whether thier honesty and willingness to admit good and bad is not wiser then our “adult” defensive and ignorant mechanisms. This is also why I decided to ask a child to be the soloist. I needed an interpreter who is almost naively susceptible and sensitive. The “Fragile” breaks easily and the “Pure” can get soiled. To find it, keep it and deliver it, that is Terezka’s task...
