Composed by the Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu in 1927, The Kitchen Revue is a ballet initially created for a sextet. This score was reviewed and tailored for an orchestra. This ballet, talking about the life of kitchen utensils, is divided in ten sections: 1. Prologue (Allegretto) 2. Introduction (Tempo de marche) 3. Danse du moulinet autour du caudron (Poco meno) 4. Danse du chaudron et du couvercle (Allegro) 5. Tango (Danse d'amour. Lento) 6. Duel (Poco a poco allegro. Tempo di Charleston) 7. Entracte (Lamentation du chaudron. Allegro moderato) 8. Marche funebre (Adagio) 9. Danse radieuse (Tempo di marche) 10. Fin du drame (Allegretto) The story focuses on the marriage of the Pot and Lid which is put at risk by the Twirling Stick, and the music features some strong jazz influences. Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) also wrote 13 other ballets, 15 operas and 6 symphonies and some orchestral and chamber music.
