Nowhere else in the world has the concept of Haydn's string quartet been more incorporated in the music culture of individual nations than in Central Europe. This piece became the most influential factor in Bartók’s instrumental music. It can mostly be perceived in his string quartets, in the rhythmical, dynamical and harmonic forms of traditional instrumental music, often very different from that of the western world. Dance, the world of organic, unique movements, which has been polished to perfection through centuries together with music, was made audible in his music.
Finetuning evolves from this organic, traditional movement culture. It speaks about such ordinary, visceral phenomena at an emotional, evocative level that modern man tends to simplify or see in black and white. The first movement of the piece presents the connection between music and dance, sound and movement, while the second movement addresses, among others, the topic of exclusion, hypocrisy and domestic violence without taboos.
The show is the iconic presentation of music through dance. The concert choreography, as a new theatrical genre, unfolds through the visualization of dance and movement alloyed with music. It talks about feelings, which are familiar to all of us and regarding which our souls could use a little fine-tuning from time to time.
