We are pleased to offer you the following unprecedented “Classical repertoire for ballet competitions” — “Pas de deux and duets” in 13 volumes (series “BALLET”). The exhaustive collection of ballet sheet music is presented in 12 parts, supplemented with detailed comments. The 13th part consists of reference materials that provide background information about the music authors, choreographers and well-known performers of the duets and variations.
This unique work may be interesting not only for its useful practical aims (as an anthology of a competitive repertoire, necessary for any particular performer), but also as one of a source of knowledge of classical choreographic heritage.
We hope, that this edition will arouse interest of the professional audience, who works in ballet theatres and choreographic schools, help in concertmaster’s work, theoretical and practical researches in a history and ways of development of the art of choreography.
