The subject of Études is classical dance technique and ballet itself. Requiring extraordinary preparation, this choreography is, so to speak, a unique ballet lesson that also serves as an "examination” of the company's technical skills: starting off by the barre, it then goes on to show jumps, turns and pointe technique in increasingly complex exercises, culminating in complicated theatrical combinations and a high level of virtuosity. Harald Lander took his inspiration from Czerny's well-known piano études and developed his choreography for the Royal Danish Ballet in 1948 using a version scored for orchestra. The work reveals the beauty and perfection of the exhausting exercises with glimpses into the various eras of dance history and the character of the legendary ballerina of La Sylphide.
