Classical Music and Movement Art of Eurythmy Blend Together In A Eurythmy Recital

Lincoln Theater is excited to present an evening of eurythmy paired with classical music in A Eurythmy Recital on March 3rd. The program features Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 31, a masterpiece of motions and countermotions, Ysaye's Sonatas for Solo Violin No. 3 and 5 carve a dynamic space, before Franck's Violin Sonata sweeps us off into romantic curves.

Inspired from their Carnegie Hall performance last spring, eurythmist Gabrielle Armenier and pianist Brigitte Armenier will perform with violinist Florin Parvulescu of the San Francisco Symphony. In this intimate recital, the trio illustrates principles associated with the spiritually expressive art of eurythmy, pioneered by Austrian philosopher and social reformer, Rudolf Steiner in the early 20th century.

Eurythmy represents a performing arts experience unlike many others. Choreographed directly from the nuances of a musical piece, eurythmy is a movement art which interprets the music as a gesture in space through choreography of the elements of 'tone', 'speech' and 'silent'. This interactive discipline links art, poetry, language, and music with the movements found at the base of all art forms.

Seamlessly integrating these artistic elements, eurythmy deeply engages the senses, from the moving musical score to the expressive, visually stunning choreography. "Eurythmy does not need music, music does not need eurythmy. But the reflection of one into the other opens up a different aspect of human experience," explains Gabrielle Armenier. "In eurythmy, I don't become the gesture, but rather I lend my body to a gesture. The audience is thus invited to become part of a gesture that is not solely my own. Movements relate to music by paying attention to the time element that lives between the notes and to the spatial one that lives in the phrase."

In keeping with the intimate nature of this performance, seating will be on stage alongside the performers. Seating is limited; purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.

A Eurythmy Recital will be performed on Sunday, March 3nd at 3pm at the Lincoln Theater in Yountville. Ticket prices are $25. To purchase tickets go to or call the Box Office at 707-944-9900.
