The collaboration of Igor Stravinsky and George Balanchine ranks as one of the most fruitful pairings in 20th-century art. Danses Concertantes, the rare Balanchine-Stravinsky ballet not danced in leotards, is a playful work with tart suggestions of humor and bright costumes. Initially presented separately, Monumentum pro Gesualdo and Movements for Piano and Orchestra have been twinned for more than 50 years. Completing the program is the classic Stravinsky Violin Concerto, among the most celebrated of the many dances Balanchine created to the composer’s work.

*This performance includes a See the Music orchestral demonstration providing insights on the music of Danses Concertantes.
