Antique Epigraphs is a ballet made on New York City Ballet by balletmaster Jerome Robbins to an orchestrated version of Debussy’s Six épigraphes antiques, L131, for piano, four hands, from 1914:…..

  • “Pour invoquer Pan, dieu du vent d’été”
  • “Pour un tombeau sans nom”
  • “Pour que la nuit soit propice”
  • “Pour la danseuse aux crotales”
  • “Pour l’égyptienne”
  • “Pour remercier la pluie au matin”

…..and his Syrinx, L129, a melody for unaccompanied flute from 1913. Six épigraphes antiques were originally written to accompany Pierre Louys‘ Chanson de Bilitis, prose poetry which was purported to be a translation of freshly discovered autobiographical verse by Sappho (it was not).[1][2] The premiere took place on February 2, 1984, at the New York State TheaterLincoln Center, with costumes by Florence Klotz and lighting by Jennifer Tipton.
