Dancer Bessie Schoenberg recalled, "The music Louis (Horst) found for her (Graham), 'Old Breton Song', had the thrust and sparse melodic content she needed; by repeating it several times with intervals of silence, she could restate her theme with the mounting crescendo of a pitched battle."
The "Lamentation Variations" are short works created for the Martha Graham Dance Company inspired by Graham’s iconic solo and choreographed by some of today’s most note-worthy choreographers.
