Les Sylphides
LES SYLPHIDES (French: ) is a short, non-narrative ballet blanc . Its original choreography was by Michel Fokine , with music by Frédéric Chopin orchestrated by Alexander Glazunov . Glazunov had already set some of the music in 1892 as a purely orchestral suite, under the title CHOPINIANA, Op. 46. In that form it was introduced to the public in December 1893, conducted by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov . The ballet, described as a "romantic reverie", is frequently cited as the first ballet to be simply about mood and dance. Les Sylphides has no plot, but instead consists of several white-clad sylphs dancing in the moonlight with the "poet" or "young man" dressed in white tights and a black tunic

Papillons
PAPILLONS, Op. 2, is a suite of piano pieces written in 1831 by Robert Schumann . The title means 'butterflies' in French. The work is meant to represent a masked ball and was inspired by the Jean Paul 's novel Flegeljahre. The suite begins with a six-measure introduction before launching into a variety of dance-like movements. Each movement is unrelated to the preceding ones, except that the second, A major, theme of the sixth movement recurs in G major in the tenth movement and the theme of the first movement returns in the finale. Eric Jensen notes that the 11th movement is appropriately a polonaise as Vult and Wina speak in her native language, Polish (Jensen 2001, 92-93). This movement starts out by quoting the theme of the traditional Grossvater Tanz (Grandfather's Dance), which was always played at the end of a wedding or similar celebration. Repeated notes near the end of the piece suggest a clock striking, signifying the end of the ball

Tarantelle (Chopin)
The TARANTELLE IN A-FLAT MAJOR, Op. 43 is a short piano piece in tarantella form, written by Frédéric Chopin in June 1841 and published in October 1841. It takes about 3 minutes to play. The Tarantelle is a moto perpetuo marked Presto, and requires an advanced technique. It was inspired by Gioachino Rossini 's song La Danza , also written in the tarantella's characteristic 6/8 rhythm. Chopin went to some lengths to ensure the time signature was the same as Rossini's, and he enlisted his friend Julian Fontana to check the best editions of the Rossini work for this detail. The manuscript shows Chopin changed his time signature from 12/8 to 6/8. There is no evidence the work was commissioned, nor was it dedicated to anyone. Robert Schumann described it as being in "Chopin's most extravagant manner; we see before us the dancer, whirling as if possessed, until our senses reel
