Notes and Editorial Reviews

This second volume of George Balanchine works danced by New York City Ballet includes three complete ballets: Concerto Barocco, starring Diana Adams, Tanaquil Le Clercq, and Jacques d’Amboise; Pas de Dix, which features principal dancers Maria Tallchief and André Eglevsky; and Agon, a work Balanchine and Igor Stravinsky created for NYCB in 1957. This historic performance – introduced by Balanchine himself – includes original cast members Diana Adams, Arthur Mitchell, Todd Bolender, and Roy Tobias. Rounding out the disc is a performance of the Grand pas de deux from The Nutcracker danced by Adams and Nicholas Magallanes.
