Con sus piezas de ballet teatro, el coreógrafo sudafricano John Cranko revolucionó el mundo de la danza, puso al Ballet de Stuttgart entre los mejores del orbe y dio lugar para el surgimiento de grandes intérpretes. De ellos, sin duda la más destacada fue Marcia Haydée, musa de todas sus obras maestras. Como "La Fierecilla Domada", que toda gran compañía desea tener en su repertorio.

Pierre Henry, les jerks électroniques de "Messe pour le temps present" pour Maurice Béjart (1967)
Pierre Henry (born December 9, 1927 in Paris, France) is a French composer, considered a pioneer of the musique concrète genre of electronic music.
Between 1949 and 1958, Henry worked at the Club d'Essai studio at RTF, founded by Pierre Schaeffer. During this period, he wrote the 1950 piece Symphonie pour un homme seul, in cooperation with Schaeffer; he also composed the first musique concrète to appear in a commercial film, the 1952 short film Astrologie ou le miroir de la vie. Henry has scored numerous additional films and ballets. Among Henry's best known works is the experimental 1967 album Messe pour le temps présent, one of several cooperations with choreographer Maurice Béjart featuring the popular track "Psyché Rock." In 1970 Henry collaborated with British rock band Spooky Tooth on the album Ceremony.
One of Henry's best-known influences on contemporary popular culture is to the theme song of the TV series Futurama. The tune is inspired by Henry's 1967 composition "Psyché Rock"

Arnold Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 ("Transfigured Night", 1899) a string sextet in one movement, after poem by Richard Dehmel of the same name. Berliner Philharmoniker - Dir. Herbert von Karajan.
Verklärte Nacht, Op. 4 ("Transfigured Night", 1899), a string sextet in one movement, is regarded as the earliest important work of Arnold Schoenberg. It was inspired by Richard Dehmel's poem of the same name — along with great inspiration upon meeting the sister of Schoenberg's teacher Alexander von Zemlinsky (Mathilde von Zemlinsky, whom Schoenberg would later marry). Schoenberg composed this very complex, passionate string sextet within three weeks of meeting Mathilde.
Dehmel's powerful poem is about a man and a woman walking through a dark forest on a moonlit night, wherein the woman shares a dark secret with her new lover; she bears the child of a stranger. The mood of Dehmel's poem is reflected throughout the composition in five sections, beginning with the sadness of the woman's confession; a neutral interlude wherein the man reflects upon the confession; and a finale, the man's bright acceptance (and forgiveness) of the woman: O sieh, wie klar das Weltall schimmert! Es ist ein Glanz um Alles her (see how brightly the universe gleams! There is a radiance on everything).
