Dance Accompaniment III by Ellina Akimova Ellina Akimova Piano Composition & Interpretation : Ellina Akimova (Bolchoï Dance Academy 1990-1995)

Exercises & Instructions : Alain Bogréau (Opéra of Paris 1959-1994) with the collaboration of Guy Poggioli ( Paris Opéra Dance School 1971-1977, Ballet Béjart 1979-1984)

Length :70mn

Fondus. 6x8. 2/4. Mouvement de tango.

This new opus, by its conception, gives a large musical variety. In the same mind as the first volume of the collection, La danse Accompagnée, created in 2000, this CD contains an advanced complete lesson. A tool the professor can handle very freely.

Review, by Catherine Tully,
There is nothing quite like taking class with an accomplished pianist providing accompaniment, and if you can’t have live music, this is the next best thing. The phrasing is perfect, and the musical choices suit the exercises in a way that only someone who knows ballet well could choose, with perky music for tendus and a pretty selection for plies. Everything is well-matched. Read more

Ellina Akimova (Paris, Juin 2003) :   Alain Bogréau, with his experience and his professionalism, helped me to deepen the work of the center. These 2001 compositions were enriched with my activity in France : Dancing school of the National Opera of Paris, in CNSMDP, concertante music - Songe Austral, nine musical pieces for piano (2000), and Notre Dame du Guildo (2003) - as well as in the theater in 2002 : The Sea gull and Camille Claudel.
Many of these parts naturally take life on scene; already Bertrant Barena had regulated in 2002, with talent and beauty, Ielenam extracted from Musique pour le Cours de Danse Classique II. Lastly, a collaboration with Guy Poggioli, for the teaching part, gives to this recording dynamism and brilliance. All these meetings nourish two passions, the Music and the Dance.
