Violoncello from A Night at the Ballet - Offenbach, J. - 'Barcarolle' from 'Tales of Hoffmann' - arr. for String Quartet by Gerald Manning
Jacques Offenbach (b Cologne, 20 June 1819; d Paris, 5 October 1880) Barcarolle from the �Tales of Hoffmann�.
Any dance that is intended for the theatre (instead of for the ballroom) can, and is loosely termed a Ballet. The older operas often had Ballets in them, as a change from the acting and singing, so sometimes the music is specially composed, and sometimes it is music that has not been composed for the purpose of the Dance. Jacques Offenbach was a theatrical impresario, and in 1855 he took a tiny theatre just off the Champs-Elysees and renamed it the Theatre des Bouffes-Parisiens, so he could indulge his passion and concentration to theatrical composition. The �Barcarolle� opens Act IV. of his opera the �Tales Of Hoffman� and is often danced as a balletti following the practice and style used in madrigal comedies.
