Description

Hans van Manen is a great admirer of the late George Balanchine, who once told him that it was impossible to choreograph Ludwig van Beethoven‘s music. He rose to the challenge, creating this ballet to two Beethoven string quartets: Grosse Fuge Op. 133 and the Cavatina movement of String Quartet No. 13 Op. 130. The resulting work is an abstract ballet on van Manen’s favourite theme - the tension and relationships between people. This performance was recorded in studio.
