Hans van Manen 90
For Concertante the famous Dutch choreographer Hans van Manen drew inspiration in 1994 from Frank Martin’s Petite symphonie concertante. It is a fascinating ballet, interspersed with humour and aggression, which even in the most dynamic solos and intense pas de deux demonstrates the refined simplicity, visual logic and musicality so typical of Van Manen’s work. Like all the best thrillers, Concertante is filled with suspense: something’s brewing, something’s bubbling, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.
