BALLET FOR MARTHA is an audiobook in three parts. In Part 1, narrator Sarah Jessica Parker tells Jan Greenberg’s story of the artistic, musical, and balletic collaboration that resulted in the Appalachian Spring ballet. Listeners may miss the illustrations that accompany the print book but will gain the ability to hear Aaron Copland’s iconic music. Parker places her words with care—as if each word were a step in the dance. Her reverential, almost magical, narration epitomizes Martha Graham’s principle of truth in movement. In Part 2, the Seattle Symphony performs excerpts from Copland’s composition. In Part 3, conductor Gerard Schwarz narrates biographical information about the creators of the ballet. This work deftly utilizes the audiobook format to provide an enhanced experience for listeners. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
