So Sorry to hear this news. I knew Brian when I was with the Harkness Ballet. My first job there as company chorologist was to notate Brian's "Time Out Of Mind" ballet. Others followed, "Firebird" was a magnificent version. RIP.

How very sad to hear this. Brian took me into the company ( Harkness) after a year of being a trainee at the school. Even though I was one of the youngest members, he gave me many opportunities from the start. I enjoyed dancing in his Firebird and the difficult Time Out of Mind. He always challenged you. RIP.
