Ballet music by Toby J. Jenkins
December 21, 2015
Today, we added to this website a page on The Master and Margarita, a ballet score written by the British composer Toby J. Jenkins.
One day, when Jenkins was living in London, a lady friend gave him The Master and Margarita as a gift. He never got around to reading the book after she gave it to him, but her description of it stayed in his subconscious. He lost the book over time and didn't think any more about it. A few years later, he was visiting a friend in Luxembourg, where he found The Master and Margarita on the book shelf. He started to read it and was suddenly absorbed and entranced by it and could not put it down.
That’s when Jenkins started composing the ballet score The Master and Margarita on piano. Later he orchestrated it using the score sheet software Sibelius.
