6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By D. Chiapello on June 4, 2007
Format: Hardcover
First, a disclaimer: My interest in this book is as a ballet-goer and amateur musician, so I have nothing to offer about the Labanotation. But I found the history of the ballet intriguing, and the rehearsal notes and photographs helped recapture memories of past performances. The rehearsal music consists of a piano solo reduction from the 2 pianos/4 hands performance score. Though I had been vaguely hoping to see the original score, the solo version certainly facilitates my playing the music for my own enjoyment. The CD recording of the solo score is well-played, but the instrument appears to be an out-of-tune upright set in the middle of a dance studio. Quite a disappointment. I'd have thought that a decent concert grand and passable sound engineering would have been considered essential - and not hard to come by - for this important project. But I realize this book is aimed at professionals in the field of dance, who would probably find my criticisms less germane to the intended purpose of the book.
