Music from three centuries illustrates the breadth of Balanchine’s tastes. The classic Concerto Barocco brings together the pristine beauty of Bach’s music with Balanchine’s own lush but spare neoclassical choreography. The 20th-century modernist Paul Hindemith provided the music for Kammermusik No. 2, a frisky dance featuring a rare all-male corps supporting two principal couples. And while waltzes were composed as early as the 16th Century, the dance in three-quarter time reached its apogee in 19th-century Vienna, inspiring Balanchine’s intoxicating celebration of its heyday.

ALL BALANCHINE III

  • Concerto Barocco

    • Music by: Johann Sebastian Bach
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    One of Balanchine’s greatest masterpieces, Concerto Barocco is music made visible as two elegant yet dynamic lead ballerinas each depict one of the instrumental soloists in a virtuosic double violin concerto.

  • Kammermusik No. 2

    • Music by: Paul Hindemith
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    Requiring great energy, speed, and precision, the striking choreography in Kammermusik No. 2 echoes the intricacies of its modernist score with jagged lines and stylized gestures.

  • Vienna Waltzes

    • Music by: Johann Strauss II, Franz Leh├ír, Richard Strauss
    • Choreography by: George Balanchine

    A work of monumental scale with a magnificent finale, the five-part Vienna Waltzes is set in moonlit Austrian forests and the regal ballrooms of Vienna.
