STEPHANIE JORDAN: MOVING MUSIC,dialogues with music in twentieth-century ballet.<P>What are the relations between music and ballet? How can they be understood and<BR>what do they show?<P>In "Moving Music" Stephanie Jordan explores these questions in depth. <P>In part 1, a broad overview of different musical concepts in twentieth-century dance,<BR>including those of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, Doris Humphrey and Merce Cunningham, is followed by a closer look at the work of choreographers such as Michel Fokine, Vaslav Nijinsky, Leonide Massine, Fyodor Lopukhov, and Serge Lifar.<P>In part 2, Professor Jordan goes on to apply this framework to the works of George Balanchine, Frederick Ashton, and Antony Tudor, highlighting the characteristics of their individual musical-choreographic styles and selecting specific works to analyse in depth.<P>"Moving Music" is both a survey of existing ideas and a source of groundbreaking new work, and will prove invaluable to all those involved in or concerned with the musical aspects of ballet. Illustrated with numerous examples, and with a focus that ranges from broad cultural and theoretical questions to detailed examinations of dance and music structures, "Moving Music" is set to become an essential text in the field.<P>392 pages; Paperback.<BR>ISBN 1 85273 063 3 Price GBP20.00<P>Hardback version (available shortly)<BR>ISBN 1 85273 076 5 Price GBP 40.00.<P>The book may be ordered from our web site catalogue by going<BR>direct to:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.dancebooks.co.uk/new.shtml#8" TARGET=_blank>http://www.dancebooks.co.uk/new.shtml#8</A> or you may send orders<BR>by email to orders@dancebooks.co.uk,<BR>by telephone to (44) (0) 207 836 2314, by fax to (44) (0) 207<BR>497 0473, or by<BR>post to Dance Books Ltd., 15 Cecil Court, London WC2N 4EZ, UK.<P><BR>

Thanks for the info Grace. I have been hoping this would be out soon as it has been in the pipe line for some time. As one of my tutors at Roehampton I have experience of Stephanie's depth and range of knowledge on this subject. I would urge anyone interested in the relationship between music and ballet to read what she has to say. From experience I know that her analysis can be complex, but seen in the context of the work it derives from it gives a new insight into how the two medias of ballet and music interact in the creative idioms of some of the greatest dance makers of the last century.<p>[This message has been edited by Tuk (edited August 03, 2000).]
