The stylish grandeur of choreographer and artistic director Oleg Vinogradov's production shows the entire company at its best. The highest tradition in dance continues with Larissa Lezhnina, one of Kirov's brightest new talents, brilliant as Princess Aurora, and Farukh Ruzimatov's performance in the role of Prince Desire demonstrates both power and grace. It may be a truism to say that Russians interpret Russian music best, but based on this stunning Kirov Ballet performance it's excitingly and exhilaratingly accurate. From the principal dancers to the last member of the ensemble, the grace and mastery of this world-class company is clearly in evidence. www.naxos.com
[Arthaus 100713] TCHAIKOVSKY: Swan Lake (Bolshoi Ballet, 1989) From the Bolshoi Theatre 1989. Swan Lake is the very essence of classical ballet and has a rather venerable history of its own. First choreographed in 1877 by the great Marius Petipa for the Bolshoi, this original choreography has since been tweaked by almost every choreographer to get hold of it down through the years. Yuri Grigorovich keeps the general outline of the story of a prince who falls in love with the mythic half-woman, half-swan Odette (only to betray her when she appears to him in disguise as Odile). Grigorovich however added a controversial twist with his inclusion of a psychological dimension to the proceedings: the evil sorcerer cast as the dark twin of the hero-prince. The pearl of this production is undoubtedly Alla Mikhalchenko as Odette-Odile. Her impressive technique and brilliant acting gives the character a new expressive dimension.

Victor Borge (Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Frederic Chopin, Johannes Brahms, F Victor Borge is an enigma for me. Though many would consider him to be simply a clown, albeit a clown spoofing classical music, some of his work is, to say the least, strikingly acute and tantalizingly interesting. The present piece is proof of this. The variations form is well-known and appears in virtually any classical music period. It would seem almost impossible to do anything new with the form but Borge proves us wrong by adopting a very unusual approach. He chooses a painstakingly well-known theme, here - "Happy birthday to you", and sets about to create variations to it. But it is only the top of the iceberg: each variation is, effectually, the way a certain composer would write the theme itself. All in all, there are eleven variations of very different composers: we start by passing through Bach and Mozart and finish with Irving and some modern composer whose name I do not know (and Borge's hilarious pronunciation does not help :P). Some of these variations are preceded by a snatch on the composer's original work from which Borge then proceeds to develop the variation. Moreover, some of his variations are rather charming (Brahms or Bach (in spite of a ridiculously humorous long descending line repeated two times)) or even, dare I say it, moving (Beethoven, in spite of some goofing on Borge's part, gets one of the better treatments). I've marked the movements in the video itself but you can also check the title which includes all composers presented in the order <b>...</b>

GIOVANNI ALLEVI - IL BACIO (IL PIANISTA E LA BALLERINA) un bacio....l'espressione più intima fra due amanti.... questa composizione di Allevi ho voluto immaginarla come la storia d'amore "impossibile" fra una ballerina classica ed il suo pianista....Due vite unite dalla musica, ma divise dal loro essere diversi...i loro giochi in un cortile, le ombre di un passato difficile da dimenticare...un leit motive in bianco e nero , come bianchi e neri sono i tasti del pianoforte....e quel bacio sognato...desiderato... Questa è la mia visione del brano di Giovanni Allevi, e così ve la propongo....vi chiedo di considerare che questo fu il mio primo video come "videomaker" sul mio primo canale YT "nikimovies" che venne cancellato da YT per ammonizioni.....grazie : ) a kiss .... the most intimate expression between two lovers .... I wanted to imagine this composition how the impossible love story between a classic danceuse and her pianist .... Two lives united by music, but divided by their being different ... their games in a courtyard.... the shadows of a past is hard to forget ... constant theme in black and white, as blacks and whites are the piano keys .... and that kiss dreamed ... wanted ... This is my vision of the Govanni Allevi piece , and so I offer it .... Please consider this was the first video I made out some years ago on my first and now cancelled YT channel "nikimovies".....thank you for watching it : )
Swan Lake - Chinese Acrobatic Ballet-Part1 With breathtaking perfection and grace the "Guangdong Acrobatic Troupe of China" tells the fairytale on the verge of human physical abilities. More than 100 acrobats and dancers show their world-famous art in gorgeous and colorful stage designs and props. They are juggling with balls while they perform a toe dance. Gym wheels seem to waltz and acrobats thrill the audience by "dancing" as frogs for several minutes solely on their hands. There seems to be no gravity, when the princess (Wu Zhengdan) is dancing en pointe not only on the shoulder of her beloved prince (Wei Baohua), but also on his head. This production of "Swan Lake" unites power, perfection and grace in a magical way. In wonderful stage designs, classical music and tradition of ballet melt with Eastern acrobatic to a unique show.
