When ballet star Ida Rubinstein seduced the audience with her sensual and erotic dance on a table in Paris in 1928, no one knew that Bolero would become one of classical music’s most spectacular and popular pieces.

The composer said himself, with an ironic twist of his mouth: “A piece for orchestra without music.” But what he did with the repeated melody is unparalleled. That this lingering motif has its own inherent value is demonstrated with all clarity in this arrangement where four celli and a snare drum carry the hypnotic melody all the way to its inexorable culmination.
