Lyric Suite (1953)

Music: Alban Berg
6-8 dancers, 30 minutes

A suite of evocative, timeless portraits set to Berg’s exquisite string quartet. Two solos for men, two solos for women, one duet for a man and woman, and a women’s quartet.

“…it speaks in abstract and stark simplicity, translating the qualitative moods of the music into penetrating and evocative movement designs. Superbly choreographed and thoroughly integrated, its lyric beauty has a direct appeal to kinesthetic response.”

Louis Horst, Dance Observer, 1954
