The Spectacular Vortex

“Music, said Grisey (who died in 1998 at 52) is made with sounds, not notes. You might say that Ms. de Keersmaeker’s movement in Vortex is made with movement, not steps.
… Nothing in this music is arbitrary, and you can only marvel at the prowess and rigor of the musicians, playing through this thicket of complexity without a score or a conductor.
… That Ms. de Keersmaeker could even contemplate choreographing to this music, and then go on to make it legible and thrilling, is a triumph.” – Roslyn Sulcas / The New York Times
