Summary
This tape begins with Bart Cook and Judith Fugate rehearsing a pas de deux from Variations on I'm old fashioned. Morton Gould discusses the progress of the work and his collaboration with Robbins. Gould talks to pianist Richard Moredock about the music he has composed. Robbins arrives. Cook and Leland demonstrate the reconstructed choreography of I'm old fashioned, a duet performed by Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth in the motion picture You were never lovelier. This choreography was performed in the finale of Variations on I'm old fashioned. The dancers stop frequently and Robbins analyzes the choreography and discusses his ideas for variations based on individual steps from the dance. Robbins and Gould talk about how Gould's compositions can support this ideas. For the remainder of this session, see *MGZIA 4-6140, *MGZIA 4-6141 and *MGZIA 4-6195.
