From Ravel to Rodrigo, orchestral music is full of toe-tappers; music that makes us sway and tap and whisk our partner into a waltz.

This program begins with three lively dance numbers: the Polovtsian Dances from Borodin’s Prince Igor; a suite of dances from Leonard Bernstein’s popular musical about three sailors on leave in New York City; and a tribute to the “art of the waltz” by Maurice Ravel.
There are many interpretations of Astor Piazolla’s Oblivion, but the soul of the work is the tango. As cellist Yo Yo Ma put it, “tango is not just about dancing. It is a music of deep undercurrents.
Concierto de Aranjuez is one of the most famous pieces for guitar and orchestra, and it came to its composer Joaquín Rodrigo famously quickly: “I heard a voice inside me singing the entire theme of the Adagio at one go, without hesitation,” he said.
Now instantly recognisable thanks to its distinct rhythm, Ravel’s Bolero was originally commissioned as a ballet, by the great Russian actress, dancer and patron of the arts, Ida Rubinstein.
