20th Century Violin Concertos: New York City Ballet Inspired by Modern Masters
Masterworks by three choreographers closely associated with the New York City Ballet -- Jerome Robbins, Peter Martins and George Balanchine -- are set to modern works by Prokofiev, Barber and Stravinsky in 20th Century Violin Concertos at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Set to a feverish concerto by Prokofiev, Robbins' Opus 19/The Dreamer follows a male protagonist on a journey to find his elusive and ethereal counterpart. Martins' noble and quixotic Barber Violin Concerto contrasts a classical couple with a barefooted modern couple as they interchange partners in varying combinations. Finally, Balanchine's choreography for the Stravinsky Violin Concerto is a carefully woven masterpiece of geometry and ingenuity. A work of symmetry and order on the outside, the pair of orchestral arias at its core provide the inspiration for two of Balanchine's most unique pas de deux.
