About En Pointe Brilliance
Some of the most enjoyable symphonic works in history have been written for ballet, and En Pointe Brilliance features two of the most famous works for ballet–one obvious by title and one instantly recognizable to the listener.
Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake suite has one of the most recognizable melodies in all of the symphonic repertoire. Hearing the iconic notes strung together with the unique tonal quality of the oboe, one can vividly imagine the gorgeous swan, elegantly floating across a smooth glassy lake.
Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours is the type of symphonic work that isn’t immediately known by its title, but when the listener travels through each portion of this work, childhood images come racing to mind. Whether it is from the iconic 1963 tune by Alan Sherman, or Walt Disney’s fantastic presentation of dancing hippos, ostriches, and crocodiles—this is a piece sure to make you smile.
