Ok, Chopin has awesome music. I personally LOVE Fantasie Impromptu for an alegre/adagio. It's got both fast and slow in it. It's a beautiful song. Try to find it!

Great post...good work nikki00!!!!
If you want to use some less well known but still beautiful music for a solo, you could try some of the Shostakovich ballet suites (No.1 is probably the best). Also Beethoven's "The Creatures of Prometheus" but this is probably best for group pieces.

I would definately suggest: "Air" by Bach, "Nocturne" from a Midsummer Night's Dream, by Mendelssohn, "Voices of Spring" and "emperor's Waltz" by Strauss. One of my absolute favourites is still Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

great ideas. My personal favorites choosing misuc is going through classical ballet poieces and adding techno beat to them.. You get a really unusual combination which works great

Edited by nikki00 (61209) on 2004-10-23 20:35:16 Links don't like me
Thanks for the comments guys :) I was searching Amazon and they have some CD's with the full scores for 'The Sleeping Beauty', 'Nutcracker' and 'Swan Lake'

Nutcracker CD1

Nutcracker 2

Hopefully the links work ok, and if anyone has these cd's or is going to get them, tell us what they are like :)

EDIT: Ok well the bottom two wouldn't work like the top two, so lets hope this works. They are Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty

Also, if you go on Amazon.com and go under classical music and type in 'ballet' it will show a lot of good music. And then on the right side is Listmania. They are lists created by other people and have some great suggestions for ballet music that I would not ordinarily think if using. I have found full length ballets for Alice in Wonderland, Sparticus, The Red Poppy, and a bunch of others.

All of these are great songs! I have choreographed to many of them myself.
Vivaldi has a lot of great compositions as well as the Four Seasons, his most popular work. I have a CD with some really beautiful Vivaldi concertos; I don't know the names of the concertos or the orchestra but the CD is called "La Pastorella". Also, pianist David Lanz has good music--it is a little contemporary but a lot of it that works excellently for classical ballet. Finally, the CD "Fiddle Recital" by Isabelle Laforet Lee has pretty fiddle songs, although a lot of them need to be edited to a shorter length.
I don't know where to find the "La Pastorella" CD, but you can find David Lanz and Isabelle Laforet Lee pieces on iTunes.

Sounds a beautiful choice and I love simple music for ballet pieces and it's the variation I think is harder And non
repetitive choeography

I love using Harry Potter music to choreograph to. I used a Harry Potter song called Neville's Waltz from the fourth movie for a small class of ten years olds and my own solo is Professor Umbridge from the fifth movie.

I love the two interpolations that the Kirov ballet uses in the last act of their swan lake production. The first is very happy and the second is a bit more somber and neither is terribly dramatic. They are both clarinet-heavy.

I also like: Hadyn's piano sonata number 59 in E flat Major
Dimitri Shostakovich's Second Waltz
Sicilienne from Pelleas et Melisande (I hope I spelled that correctly)
Swan and Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals
And Promenade (walking the dog) if you're looking for a bright tune.

This was very helpful :) I performed to spring concerto last year for my ballet solo. This year I'm considering: dance of the sugar plum fairies or winter concerto
