Music: Not so famous ballet music


Recommended Posts

I'm downloading ballet music onto my iPod and I am really interested in the more not-so-well-known ballet music such as The Pineapple Doll, The Fairy Doll. I want to download gorgeous music besides the stereo-typical music like The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, etc. Does anyone know of some music?

William Walton has composed some shorter ballets

If you go to the site for dancebooks.co.uk, they have an online catalogue of just about every piece of ballet music ever written!

Wow! That site is really good, I never knew about it before and have found many ballet CD's that I will tell my dance teacher about since she is always complaining about walmart and target not selling ballet music!!!

"Pineapple Poll" is a vintage 1951 ballet by John Cranko, set to music by Sir Arthur Sullivan and based on Sir William Schwenck Gilbert's humorous poem "The Bumboat Woman's Story". It's very funny, even musically.

I saw this piece on CD in our library yesterday. On the same CD you can find 'La Boutique Fantasque' alias Matthew Bourne's 'Boutique' based on ballet, fashion and London's Carneby Street in the 1960s
