2012 Resonance: Disc 3

Charles Baudelaire once said, “Dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals.” Disc III is an invitation to the dance, celebrating the marriage of movement and music. Beginning with the Second Orchestral Suite of Johann Sebastian Bach, a collection of traditional Baroque dance forms, the disc jumps ahead to Kaiserwalzer, written by the “Waltz King” Johann Strauss Jr., which leads listeners to Debussy’s magnificent Danse sacrée et danse profane. The disc concludes with Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances, providing examples of polka and duple-meter Transylvanian dance, and Aaron Copland’siconic ballet Appalachian Spring.
