COPLAND, Aaron. Dance Panels: Ballet in Seven Sections. London: Boosey & Hawkes, (1965). Quarto, original printed wrappers. $1100.

First edition of the reduction for piano solo of Copland’s ballet, signed by the composer on the title page.

Copland composed his ballet Dance Panels in 1959, and revised it in 1962 for the German choreographer Heinz Rosen. Rosen choreographed the ballet’s first performance, by the Bavarian State Opera Ballet, in Munich in December, 1963. Both the full score and the piano solo were first published in 1965. In his “Note on performance” preceding the music, Copland writes: “The choreographer may present it as an ‘abstract’ ballet or as a ‘story’ ballet, according to his own ideas.” Original price stamp to front wrapper.

A fine copy.
