Ballet musicMusic may be composed specially for a ballet. Distinguishing feature of the ballet music: it is the orientation on the emotional character and motility of dance movement, connection between scene activity.
But a choreographer usually chooses music that has been already composed and
recorded. Music also can give the choreographer idea of the future ballet. When
choreographers select music, they think about what the music may say. They can
work with a dramatist, who write the story of ballet, or work alone.
