Bartók was constantly concerned about the history and future of humanity, and his works were often inspired by direct reflections. His fantastic musical world faithfully reflects and renders the wonderful chaotic perfection created by nature, which is also a ceaseless source of inspiration for FrenÁk’s creative work, and in which a yearning that causes dependence, sensuality, and being an outsider in society cannot remain hidden from the audience. Central to FrenÁk’s concept is the figure of a man who is passionate, purposeful, stubborn, (almost) indestructible, knows no obstacles, and is capable of everything to taste pleasure and fulfil his desires, even at the cost of his own life. Concluding the performance and opening a new thread of thought, FrenÁk – reflecting on another work by Bartók – reveals a world that offers the female protagonist the opportunity to purify herself, among the scenery of a mysterious, uplifting world.
