Concert Notes

The NSS concludes our season collaborating with pianist Bob Boguslaw to present Paul Hindemith's "Four Temperaments". This composition was commissioned as a ballet by the renowned choreographer George Balanchine and has great significance in the history of ballet as one of the earliest works without a plot which paved the way for subsequent abstract ballets. The concept behind this work is the philosophy of the four temperaments of ancient times which categorized human beings into four character types: melancholic, sanguine, phlegmatic and choleric.

NOTE: NSS concerts typically last around two hours, including a 15-minute intermission.
