Paul Hindemith wrote few ballets; Hérodiade is based on Stéphane Mallarmé’s dialogue poem…The music for the textual portions of the nurse in the poem is given to the strings, while the lines of Hérodiade are represented by the winds as well as the piano. It doesn’t sound like a ballet but it is one of the composer’s most original, provocative, and richly romantic-sounding works with its luscious orchestration and vibrant rhythms.
