Maurice Béjart's Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, in full on line till February 5
performed by Bejart Ballet Lausanne and Tokyo Ballet. It takes about 10 minutes before you get to anything recognizable as Beethoven, but it does get there. Click here.

The unsung hero(in)es of a ballet company: the pianists
Watch Royal Ballet pianists rocking the Rachmaninov in rehearsals for Frederick Ashton's Rhapsody (which, you will recall, you don't want to miss at a cinema near you later this month). For more background on the music of Rhapsody, click here.
