Liebe und Tod
Maurice Béjart

Maurice Béjart has created many ballets based on the music of Gustav Mahler: Le Chant du compagnon errant, Ce que l’Amour me dit, Ce que la Mort me dit, Adagietto, A force de partir je suis resté chez moi…(Song of a Wayfarer, What Love Tells Me, What Death Tells Me, Adagietto, By dint of leaving I stayed at home).

In Liebe und Tod, the choreographer took a “Lied” which had already been put to dance: Wo die schönen Trompetten blasen, and matched it with a new creation for Gil Roman: La Mort du tambour (The Death of the Drum). The latter is choreographed on Der Tamboursg’sell, another “Lied” by Mahler taken from the collection titled Des Knaben Wunderhorn.
