Igor Stravinsky originally wrote the Danses concertantes for a California-based entertainment orchestra. However, the five movements are more than purely orchestral dances. The piece is reminiscent of a ballet suite. The two marches at the beginning and end mark the entrance (prologue) and departure (epilogue) of the dancers, with two of the middle movements - 'pas d'action' and 'pas de deux' - obviously alluding to the ballet. The arrangement for two pianos by Ingolf Dahl is not just a reduction of the orchestral writing, but deliberately intended as an independent concert version.
