Les Sylphides--music changes?


  1. 1. Les Sylphides--music changes?

    • Mazurka in D op.33 no.2
    • Mazurka in ? op. 33 no.3
    • And then there is always the "don't know, don't care" option

Ok, this may be a tough one.

Does anyone know to which mazurka the ballerina's solo in Les Sylphides was danced in 1909?

Cyril Beaumont in his "Complete Book of Ballets" has it as op.33 no.3 (which has, I understand, become the guy's mazurka in Russia).

I have a Robert Irving recording according to which the girl's mazurka is in D op.33 no.2 and the boy's is in C op.67 no.3 (same as in Reynolds' book)

So did Beaumont get it wrong? Is it a misprint or was the music changed?
