Paul Taylor Dance Company in Paris (Friday - PBS, 9pm) - Recorded
during the Taylor Company’s 2012 performances at the Theatre National de
Chaillot in Paris, Great Performances presents two of Taylor’s enduring
masterworks: Brandenburgs, first performed in 1988 to music from Bach’s Brandenburg concertos #3 and #6; and his 2008 ballet Beloved Renegade, set to Francis Poulenc’s “Gloria” and inspired by the life and work of poet Walt Whitman.
