Music ideas please


Recommended Posts

Hi. I wonder if any of you could help with some music ideas please. I am looking for a piece of instrumental music for a modern ballet/contemporary dance that represents being reborn or regaining strength after weakness. I was thinking it needs to start off quite slowly and then build up to a crescendo. I hope that makes sense. It can be classical or contemporary, we wont know what we like until we hear it. I've searched youtube but haven't found anything that really grabs me. It needs to be powerful but not necessarily too fast. Any help, thoughts or pointers in the right direction would be really appreciated. I am just not good at these things. Thank you.

My DD does a pointe solo to Elgar's Nimrod from the Enigma Variations (edited to the right length). No idea if it's suitable but it's definitely powerful and builds.


The other classic 'build to crescendo' would be Ravel's Bolero?
