The dances were ‘alleged’ because the steps for them had yet to be invented (although by now a number of choreographers, including Paul Taylor, have created pieces around them). The general tone is dry, droll and sardonic. Pavane ‘She’s so fine’ is one of the four movements played without the recorded percussion track.
