Natascha Chircop Piano
Marco Rivoltini Piano


Paul Hindemith 8 Walzer Op. 6  
Antonín Dvořák Slavonic Dances Op. 72 nos. 5 – 8 
John Corigliano Gazebo Dances 
Allen Shawn Three Dance Portraits 
Maurice Ravel La Valse (arr by L Garban)


Colourful rhythmic structures and textures are explored through different dance forms over the span of a century. The programme varies from Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances in Bohemian traditional dance forms to Shawn’s Dance Portraits, which highlight the detailed intensity of notes and dancing buoyancy of rhythms, integrating dissonant harmonies and romantic pianism. Included also are

The Gazebo Dances by Corigliano, a reminiscence of the little bands playing in the village squares of New England, together with Hindemith’s 8 Waltzes, an early intimate work having sinuous rhythms which starkly contrasts with Ravel’s fully-fledged La Valse with all its virtuosity and sensual richness.
