Description

Ennui on CD

This is an album about boredom. It takes the award-winning Musicbanda Franui, accompanied by great actor Peter Simonischek, away from their daily routine, back to the days of their childhood, and straight on to the graveyard. By ennui they don't mean dull, though. Rather, it refers to a state of existential boredom, the moment when you are seized by black emptiness, when you realize the absurdity of life - or in whichever other ways this state has been described by philosophers. One of them, Kierkegaard, claimed that boredom could never be suspended by work but only by amusement. Amusement, distraction, diversion, entertainment - or, in musical terms: divertimento. Franui have woven a memorable musical tale from brilliant examples of this genre, by Mozart, Satie, Schumann, and others. All there is left to say is: amuse yourselves!
