About

Lord Bernersís compositions, often satirical in intention, include ballets for Diaghilev and for Sadlerís Wells. While his first ballet, The Triumph of Neptune, is an ambitious and inventive example of his art (Naxos 8555222), the choral ballet A Wedding Bouquet is Bernersís most original and successful work, if somewhat influenced by Stravinskyís Les Noces. Written to a text by Gertrude Stein and choreographed by Frederick Ashton, this is music full of vivacity, festive brilliance and pathos. Set in a freak show pavilion, Luna Park is a Ďfantastic ballet in one actí, succinctly scored and wittily characterised.
