despite premiering in 1972, george balanchine‘s stravinksy violin concerto is beautiful, modern and relevant.  last night i had the luxury of enjoying 20th century music masters by the new york city ballet. there were three performances and balanchine’s was by far my favorite.  i was immediately seduced by a graceful and delicate dance punctuated with contemporary postures.  costumes restricted to black and white color palette allowed all attention to focus on motion.  i found the ballet to be trend-setting.  or so i thought.  turns out balanchine passed in 1983.  i never claimed to be knowledgeable + felt beyond foolish to learn this piece was not at all modern in time-line.  nevertheless, i look forward to seeing more of his genius.  russians have ballet down + st. petersburg is premier.
