» » Allegro Brillante (2016)

Short summary

One of George Balanchine's most joyous, pure dance pieces, Allegro Brillante is characterized by what Maria Tallchief - the ballerina on whom the bravura leading role was created - called "an expansive Russian romanticism." The ballet is set to Tschaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 3, a work that the composer created from sketches for a composition that was intended to be his Sixth Symphony, but which instead served as a single movement work which was published posthumously in 1894. Balanchine described this ballet as a concentrated essay in the extended classical vocabulary, in which a maximum amount of choreographic development is contained within a rather restricted area of time and space.
