    Brian Easdale - Ballet from “The Red Shoes”: V. Largo

    Performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales w/ Cynthia Millar on Ondes Martenot

    [The Red Shoes score’s] innovative departure was secured by effective use of the Ondes Martenot, an instrument invented in 1928.

    This strange electronic keyboard instrument produced a shimmering and eerie glissando and was used in the dream and nightmare sequences of the ballet, imparting a magical and enchanted atmosphere that matched and enhanced Hein Heckroth’s inspired sets.” 

    -excerpted from Mark Connelly’s The Red Shoes
