This carnet de bal (‘dance card’), by the RTBF Symphony Orchestra, is based on the programme in the manual by Maurice Jattefaux, who wrote on old dances (and how to dance them) in 1926. Lou and Claude Flagel were inspired by this manual to conduct choreographic research. The result is a joyous collection of gigues, troikas, polkas and waltzes recorded in 1990. The CD booklet includes a real dance card, which you can find below and write the names of your dance partners on. Strike up the first waltz!

Original booklet available below in English and French.
