Chamber music



Edward Burne-Jones, famous pre-Raphaelite painter studies the legend of Briar Rose of the Grimm brothers (1812) Rosaspina or the Sleeping Beauty, dedicating a cycle of works between 1885 and 1890. The paintings, while inspired by the legend of Rosaspina, they do not represent the different moments of the fairy tale but they portray the same moment of the narrative, the sleep. The figures are frozen in a heavenly elegance in appearance and demeanor, afflicted by angelic gender uncertainty as they all belong to a lost and perfect world. They are women, but they represent the whole of humanity slumbering just before the great deeds, the change, the awakening of ideals. It is to these atmospheres, shades and images that the Briar Rose quintet is inspired and resounds. Like Sir Edward Jones, the women of Briar Rose also leave the end of the fairy tale to the public's imagination, deciding to entrust it not to prose, but to the most sublime of the arts: music. Remembering that the best fates are made of elegance, good fortune and commitment.
