Lar Lubovitch’s 2007 “Little Rhapsodies” from the very romantic Symphonic Etude by Robert Schumann edge on purple choreographic prose with very expressive gestures and dance decoration. But once again Lubovitch gets inside the music and is free enough to be calligraphic.

Highlights are the three men camaraderie lurches and glissades, reminiscent of Cossack dances. All of those pretty steps break away into three intriguing solos with an impressive range for each dancer- Attila Joey Gaiki, Jonathan E. Alsberry and a very Byronic Jay Franke.
