Boris Eifman : "Reading the poem " Requiem " , I always marvel at how rampant the pain that pulsates in rows Akhmatova. Again and again the images of mourning " rabid years » fills the heart . And string buried alive frozen in eternal waiting at the prison gates ...
Screaming woman , whose share fell terrible ordeals , Akhmatova 's poem echoing moans thousand unfortunate wives and mothers . This symphony of sorrow never ceases to sound in me. Sacred pain does not subside .
Truly, the world of human suffering bottomless . But in the course of life is hidden divine continuity of being , which brilliantly sung in his "Requiem" by Mozart. Listening to his work, feel the breath of eternity. Anxiety and fears disappear , you're riddled with foreboding universal mystery. Where am I? Why should I ? What am I? Appealed to his memory. That she enters the world of unprotected youth , raises test maturity , wisdom, and the impotence of old age. How much malice , slander and violence in my mind ... And how many perennial touch of happiness, love ! ..
Suffering , despair , hope - all in me , in all of us . And dirge merges with Mozart's hymn to life . "
