With Ballet Brillance, we've tried to produce an all-purpose ballet compilation, useful for exercises (both barre and floor) and with pieces ideal for free work. It also includes an 11-minute suite of pieces which can be used to provide a story-line for a show. Most of the pieces are piano-only, and the others range from music-box to full orchestra.
