Ballare is a classical ballet blanc set to Mozart’s “Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major.” The interplay of the two keyboards creates a sense of three-dimensionality in the music.
The movement is refined and confident, clear but not easy. The choreography shifts with the changes in formation and recombination of the dancers. These adjustments happen in much the same way that Mozart shifts the emphasis in the sonata through the coordination of the two pianos.
