No, not South American...

I insist: “I love the city where my ballet was performed”

All I think and post is otomh: Gerswhin?

Con todo mi amor,
Sevilla, Sevilla te quiero.

The only ballet by a very famous North American composer, orchestrated by another famous composer.

That’s it...and the other clues should IMHO have given away the identity of the composer (not the orchestrator) by now...

I love that effing city... Ella Fitzgerald... yeah, it's about as clear as the darkest midnight ever --- but then again I'm not American.  :D

You don’t have to be American to have heard of this, sung by Ella, or by Frank, or by Maurice... in the springtime, in the summer....

Cole Porter?

Are you looking for Within the Quota by Cole Porter?


Finally!

Cole Porter, who wrote the song I Love Paris for the musical Can-Can, wrote the ballet Within the Quota (choreography by Jean Borlin) for Rolf de Maré’s Ballets Suedois. The work was orchestrated by Charles Koechlin, and first performed at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées on October 25, 1923. On that same evening, Darius Milhaud’s jazz-infused La création du monde received its world premiere.

Florestan, don’t tell me you had never heard I Love Paris???

So ex aequo Florestan and San Antone, I’d say.  :)

I have heard it alright, Ella and Maurice included, but I have never known the story behind it.  Thanks for sharing. :)

While I'm thinking about mine, I'll gladly let San Antone post his.

Give it to Florestan since he came up with the composer before I did.

Thanks. Here's an easy one.


My ancestry was threefold, my father was an alcoholic and my stepfather died while I was in my teens. I have never taken any conducting classes yet I was barely 18 when I conducted a famous contemporary work alongside one of my own compositions. I am famous more for my recordings than for my compositions and I died in exile. My name is...?
