The films of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were theinspiration for “Danses pour Ginger”. Koechlin (1867-1950) was especially fascinated by “Swing Time” (directed by George Stevens; USA, 1936) and between1936 and 1940 went to see this film seven times.

The first two pieces are for piano solo and the remaining three for piano duet.

A recording by the piano duo of Yaara Tal and Andreas Groethuysen is available on the Sony Classical label, SMK 89618. L'élan • Danse lente • Les tourbillons • La danse sous les étoiles (d'après un épisode de “Swing Time”) • Final / Apothéose de la danse. For piano two hands or piano four hands.
