Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker (Complete Ballet)/ Sleeping Beauty Suite
4.4 out of 5 stars with 240 reviews
Conductor Seiji Ozawa elicits one of the Boston Symphony's more enthusiastic and sincerely committed performances of the last 20 years in this solid rendition of Tchaikovsky's timeless but often sloppily performed masterpiece. The beloved ''character dances'' are performed with the kind of style and exceptional ensemble precision worthy of one of the world's most mature and capable orchestras. --David Vernier.
A Covent Garden Class
4.2 out of 5 stars with 33 reviews
SM02C This warm collection of thirty-two compositions is a tribute to an area in London called Covent Garden. It is the main arts area in London and this compact disc blends together many different musical types to create a classroom atmosphere reminiscent of this artistic haven. Each selection on this 62 minute CD is played with the usual flair like stop time and big sweeping melodies that are so important to David Howard's ballet class. The CD starts off with the very familiar nocturne from

2010 2X CD collection. Ludwig Minkus, born in Vienna gained fame in Russia with his ballet scenes in the 1860's & 70's. in Don Quixote, a romantic young couple outshine the doleful Spanish knight, while La Bayadere breathes the air of the Himalayas. If the Italian-born Riccardo Drigo also made his career in St. Petersburg's imperial theatres, three further contemporaries of Minkus; Eduard Helsted, Holger Paulli & Niels Gade are remembered by their compositions for their fellow Dane, the great

From the tribal dances of Africa to the silken grace of a European minuet, dance rhythms deliver the inspiration for Choreography, violin phenomenon Vanessa-Mae's first recording for the Sony Classical label. Backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the stunning young violinist introduces new, dance-inspired tracks by composers as diverse as Oscar-winning Vangelis, Bill Whelan of Riverdance, Tolga Kashif (The Queen Symphony) & the Indian film composer A.R. Rahman (Bombay Dreams).

By Musical Heritage Society
4.5 out of 5 stars with 275 reviews

Debussy: Orchestral Music
mpn: 2438742, ean: 0028943874229,
4.4 out of 5 stars with 179 reviews
CD Bernard Haitink's recordings of the Nocturnes and Jeux were hailed as among the finest available when initially issued. That LP provided rather short measure. Now you can get all of Debussy's most important orchestral music on two CDs for the price of one, and if the remaining performances don't quite reach the exalted level of the Nocturnes and Jeux, they come so close as to make no difference. Haitink was not a very assertive conductor (and he's gotten less so with age), but he was
The Record of Singing, Vol. 5: 1953-2007 - From the LP to the Digital Era

4.8 out of 5 stars with 71 reviews
As you hear selections from Turandot, Madama Butterfly, Don Giovanni, Il Trovatore, Rigoletto, Carmen, Otello, Tosca, Tannhauser and more, you'll behold the beauty of Maria Callas, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Victoria de los Angeles, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Nicolai Gedda, Boris Christoff, Franco Corelli, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, Montserrat Caballe, Mirella Freni, Natalie Dessay and many more!.
Stravinsky: The Firebird (Complete Ballet, 1910) / Scriabin: Prometheus - The Poem of Fire
mpn: 028944671520, ean: 0028944671520,
4.5 out of 5 stars with 178 reviews
One seldom hears Stravinsky's original, complete, 1910 score to Diaghilev's ballet, The Firebird. Here Valery Gergiev leads the Kirov Orchestra in a muscular, well-defined rendering of the work in full. His is a decidedly controlled interpretation. Stretched out in spots to bring out clarity and significance of line, it's pushed along in others to convey urgency and melodic direction. The microphones sound very close, which only heightens the vitality of the overall texture of this
Carlo Maria Giulini- The Chicago Recordings
4.6 out of 5 stars with 126 reviews
The recordings that Giulini made with the Chicago Symphony between 1969 and 1976 document an extraordinary partnership and remain among the finest of the conductor's career. Giulini's Mahler First is more lyric than most, yet with enough energy to satisfy Mahlerians; the last movement a tribute to the conductor's unerring sense of orchestral balances even in crushing climaxes. His rendition of the orchestral movements of Berlioz's ''dramatic symphony'' Romeo and Juliet excels in its poetry, the
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring/Pulcinella Suite
mpn: 089408026621, ean: 0089408026621,
4.2 out of 5 stars with 195 reviews
SALE PRICE : 1992 release from Israeli conductor with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on Telarc, performing Igor Stravinsky's 'Rite Of Spring' & 'Pulcinella Suite'. These two ballets represent the opposite extremes of Stravinsky's creative personality. On the one hand, there's The Rite of Spring, the ultimate expression of musical primitivism (so much so that it served as ''dinosaur'' music in Disney's Fantasia). On the other hand, there's Pulcinella, and elegant neo-classical confection based
Korngold: Der Sturm / Cello Concerto / Much Ado About Nothin
4.2 out of 5 stars with 121 reviews
Erich Wolfgang Korngold was born in Vienna in 1897, son of the feared, powerful music critic Julius Korngold, and he died in Hollywood in 1957. A sensational child prodigy, he composed his first ballet under Zemlinsky's tutelage at age 11, and four years later had written an opera, choral, orchestral and chamber music. A major career seemed assured but was aborted by Hitler; fortunately, Korngold was already in Hollywood, where he became one of the best and most successful film composers.
