While the dancers were of a high caliber, especially Melissa Sandvig who competed recently on Fox TV's "So You Think You Can Dance," the vocabulary of the choreographer was very limited and repetitious.

A world premiere of Hammerklavier, a multi-media ballet set to Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 29 in B flat major, Op. 106, widely considered to be one of the most important works of the composer’s third period. The sonata, written in 1817-18, represents the spectacular emergence of many of the themes that were to recur in Beethoven’s late period: the reinvention of traditional forms, and a return to pre-classical compositional traditions.
Completing the program: Rogers’ acclaimed Transcription, set to Busoni’s piano transcription of Bach’s Chaconne in D minor; Ostinato In C set to Sergey Taneyev’s Piano Quintet, and Dankgesang set to Beethoven’s third movement from Quartet in A minor.
