Balanchine’s Scotch Symphony, a shimmering tribute to the romantic ballets of the 19th Century, leads a program that continues with the sweepingly romantic Valse Fantaisie, set to the music of his fellow Russian Glinka, followed by the charming pas de deux Sonatine, created for the Company’s 1975 Ravel festival. The program concludes with Stravinsky Violin Concerto, a timeless classic that never ceases to reveal new intricacies.
