Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century dance, Kurt Jooss_ ballet expresses the futile, relentless tragedy of war. The flashing white gloves of the diplomats around the green table and Death_s inexorable stamping as he gathers in his victims, make an unforgettably powerful impact. This studio recording with the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago was staged by the choreographer_s daughter, Anna Markard, who reconstructed his work as faithfully as possible. Frederic Cohen_s score for two pianos is played by May Sofge and Fiona Boznos. One of the masterpieces of twentieth-century dance, Kurt Jooss_ ballet expresses the futile, relentless tragedy of war.
