Summary
Jerome Robbins directs a rehearsal of excerpts from Variations on I'm old fashioned. The rehearsal begins with a variation nicknamed Back to back, which was cut from the final version of the ballet. The second variation is rehearsed next, followed by a run-through of the first, second and third variations, with Back to back between the first and second variations. At the end of the tape there is a brief rehearsal of the sixth variation, a solo by Bart Cook. Morton Gould discusses the music with Robbins and with pianist Richard Moredock.
