‘I wouldn’t have wanted to make Piano without Howard. I’ve known his work for a number of years and I chose him because his painting has the same qualities of formal grandeur and intimacy as Beethoven’s music, which we both love’.
Ashley Page quoted in Jann Parry, 'An Eye for Dance', Observer, 16th July 1989.

Taking Beethoven’s first Piano Concerto as the starting point, Ashley Page choreographed Piano for The Royal Ballet in close collaboration with Hodgkin.  As well as an exuberant backdrop that was gradually revealed throughout the performance, Hodgkin designed the costumes for the five principals and the corps de ballet.

Piano was first performed by The Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden on 6th October 1989.
