About: This is another good CD for ballet class by Behind Barres–and by now that shouldn’t be a surprise. Still, this one in particular has some really great music on it–thus the “By Request” in the title. These tracks are actually ones that were asked for again and again.
You can hear adaptations of songs such as “Puttin’ On The Ritz” and other tunes you’ll recognize, which make for a fun class. As with other CDs this company has put out, the sound quality and arrangements are top of the line, so you don’t have to worry about if the songs will sound good in the studio.
Curious? Head over to the site and listen to a few sample tracks to get a feel for what is on this CD.
Finding good music for class is a challenge that I used to dread. Luckily, over the years there have been companies such as this that have sprung up to deliver ballet music that is fun, inspirational, and, just as importantly, good quality. If you can’t have a live pianist in the room with you, at least you can get the next best thing.
