"Laurencia"Other composers than just Crain?

I haven't really been able to find any information on the music of Laurencia so excuse me if this question is incredibly ignorant, but did Krain go back to the roots of ballet and create a pastiche score or is this just a "coincidence" he hoped no one would notice?

there was a Soviet film, from the '40s? which is rarely shown/seen and not to the best of my understanding available on the web.
mostly what remains of the ballet are solo 'variations,' which various Soviet/Russian ballet video compilations include and the self-contained Pas de Six - which i imagine is the work being 'restaged' for the Trocks, and which is probably best known in the West from Nureyev's '64 staging for the Royal Ballet.
NYPL dance coll. cat. listings for the full ballet and the pas de six follow:
