Sleeping Beauty - Tchaikovsky (another of Russian's legendary ballets 3 x CDs)

£8.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring The Orchestra of The Royal Opera House Covent Garden conducted by Marc Ermler, in a December 1989 staging)

It had been more than a decade since the partially successful premiere of "Swan Lake" to a Moscow audience, when the Director of the Imperial Theatres at St Petersburg, Ivan A Vsevolozhsky, suggested to Pyotr Tchaiovsky (1840-93), that he compose music for the traditional fairy tale, "The Sleeping Beauty". Having been "burned" by the "Swan Lake" experience, Tchaikovsky was naturally reluctant to set foot once again into the world of ballet, but when he read the outline sketched out by his friend Vsevolozhsky, he soon became enchanted by the idea ...

Vsevolozhsky arranged, from the outset, a collaboration between Tchaikovsky and Marius Petipa, a 70-year old French choreographer who had been the St Petersburg ballet-master for 26 years. Pepita had choreographed 42 ballets in his time, raising the art "to a new level of splendour and style", but this in no way, meant rivalries or confrontations between he and the Russian composer. On the contrary, Pepita later commented that his problems were eased "when one collaborates with a composer of genius like Pyotr Tchaikovsky". Thus it was, that another classic Tchaikovsky ballet was to be created.
