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'elan * Danse lente * Les tourbillons * La danse sous les etoiles (d'apres un episode de "Swing Time") * Final / Apotheose de la danse. For piano two hands or piano four hands.
