The Lost Chord: May 17 - England à la Russe

the_triumph_of_neptune_danilova_lifar.jpg

Serge Diaghilev, impresario of the Ballets Russes, commissioned some of the most enduring ballet music of the 20th century, from such composers as Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Manuel de Falla, and Igor Stravinsky.  Less well known is the fact that two Englishmen were also approached.  Tune in for “Romeo and Juliet,” a kind of backstage comedy, by a 20 year-old Constant Lambert, and ‘The Triumph of Neptune,” a whimsical fairy tale, by the self-styled eccentric Lord Berners.  That’s a heady mix of hornpipes and pas de deux.  Britannia rules the (air)waves, this Sunday at 10 pm.
