NYCB Vol. 10 No. 23 - The Concert

Jerome Robbins: “The Concert goes back to my childhood when a musical piece was briefly explained to me as ‘butterflies,’ ‘raindrops’ and so on… I allowed myself to introduce into the piece my own personal touch of madness, but it conceals a deeper meaning which I only discovered when I had finished composing it: in the short anecdotes…there are no victors. Through the music, all the characters abandon their everyday selves. Whether they move up or down, they all try to do something extraordinary but they are all defeated by circumstances which inevitably bring them back to earth.”
