Chopin — Nocturne in C sharp minor, Op. 27, No. 1


Nadia Chilkovsky Nahumck

Reference: Nahumck, Nadia Chilkovsky. Isadora Duncan: The Dances. Washington DC: The National Museum of Women in the Arts, 1994.

This is a Maria-Theresa work in the style of Isadora Duncan. It seems to be a representation of old age remembering youth. The dancer, overwhelmed by life's cumulative shadows, momentarily reaches for a suspension of time and the delaying of death, which inevitably claims the reluctantly yielding life.
