In G Major


In G Major

"In G Major" is a ballet made for New York City Ballet's Ravel Festival by balletmaster Jerome Robbins to the composer's "Piano Concerto in G Major" (1928-31). The premiere took place May 15, 1975, at the New York State Theater, Lincoln Center, with lighting by Mark Stanley. The Paris Opera Ballet commissioned scenery and costumes by Erté when it staged Robbins' ballet under the name "En Sol", decor which has subsequently been borrowed by City Ballet. Ravel composed the concerto after travelling in the United States and is reported to have described the work as "... written in very much the same spirit as those of Mozart and Saint-Saëns," and said that "it uses certain effects borrowed from jazz, but only in moderation." [(Arbie Orenstein, Ravel: Man and Musician.)]
