    There are a number of recordings for the piano reduction of the three Tchaikovsky ballet suites. Ones I have listened to or sampled include (all of them are for four hands): Aurora Duo, Naxos: SL (arr. Langer), SB (arr. Rachmaninov), NC (arr. Esipoff) Argerich and Economou, DG: NC (arr...

    The 22nd to 82nd video in this playlist are supposed to cover the entire ballet, but I'm not sure that it's all there, as it's mostly cut when performed. Wikipedia lists all of the pieces here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sleeping_Beauty_(ballet)#Structure Can anybody tell me if anything...

    Hi All, Does anyone know if there is a way to access a recorded stage performance of Bartok's Wooden Prince ballet? I have been looking everywhere for a performance of this piece but haven't had any luck. I would also be interested to know if there are recorded stage performances of...

    On Friday night (11/3), Ballet West, Utah's pro ballet company, put on something rather unique. The first half of the performance was George Balanchine's "Serenade." Very well-done. The second half of the performance after the intermission was something I've never experienced before. It was the...

    I was looking for a general discussion/recommendation thread, but I can't see one. Ballet on video is frequently expensive compared to Opera! I think it would be a good idea to have a place to talk about it before we spend lots of money. I am a noob, so I hope lots of you will bring your...

    For a limited period only, the English National Opera is proud to present one of China's most legendary poems adapted and performed by the award-winning Shanghai Ballet as part of the Shanghai season at the Coliseum at London's famous West End. From the 17th to the 21st of August, choreographic...
  8. Ballet
    Relatively, I am new to classical music in general, as I only really started listening seriously a year ago. I have only come across two or three pieces from ballet's, would anybody be ale to suggest some good pieces/composers/ballets to explore?

    Hello I just saw a promo for the Manon Ballet and I'm curious if anyone is familiar with this particular piece that plays in the promo. Here's the link:

    The Seasons shall be revived as a ballet and not just as a symphonic work! I know it! There is so much potential of choreography, plot, and visuals:

    Think you know French music? From the salon to the symphony hall, from the opera to the ballet, the French have given us some great music. But, how much French music do YOU know? Try this little quiz. I got 15/20 and surprised myself.
  12. Ballet
    As a very new member, I have been really struck by the number of people who post that they enjoy ballet or ballet scores, but have never actually seen a live on-stage performance. Why is that? Is it that no live performances ever take place in the region where they live? Is it that they fear...

    Iosif Arshakovich Andriasov (Ovsep Andreasian) was born in Moscow, USSR, to an Armenian family in 1933. He was a classical composer and philosopher. Dmitry Shostakovich said of him: "When the entire world lost a sense of harmony, composer Iosif Andriasov has not only not lost this sense, but...
  14. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    I've been wondering what film composers are slightly left of centre. Michael Nyman springs to mind with his music for Greenaway films. Erik Satie's Entr'acte I think was actually written as a film interlude in his ballet Relache, but interesting as a film score for a bizarre film nevertheless...

    What are your five favorite ballet movements? We had this discussion a while ago. I believe it was in the CM forum before the Ballet forum existed. 1.Wilis Grand Pas - Giselle 2.Garland Dance - The Sleeping Beauty 3.Waltz of the Princesses - Swan Lake 4.Capture of the Firebird by Prince Ivan...

    Opera is very much a world which visits the listener. The human voice is the sound more than any other the one we can most relate to. It reaches us and we need make no effort to relate, feel for and silently commune with. Ballet can be a richer experience. We find a more foreign and strange...
  17. Orchestral Music
    Hello everybody, this is my first post so I would like to greet all of you Talk Classical users. I am rehearsing Gounod Ballet Music from "Faust" and I have been listening to quite a lot of renditions. In the 6th dance (Mirror Variations) the first violins should play sextuplets, but everybody...

    I have just been doing an archaeological dig in the depths of my house and come across some old program books reminding me of past concerts... Kiri Te Kanawa recital in Los Angeles, 1979 - Schubert, Schumann, Strauss, Wolf, Faure, Duparc & Walton (somewhere I should have a booklet from an...

    Ballet West, the organization that I work for, is very awesome! We have a wonderful season coming up for 2015-6. What is your local ballet organization(s) like around where you live?

    Most orchestral concerts consist of established masterpieces which have been staples of the repertoire for at least a hundred years or so, although there are exceotions . The concerts by Leon Botstein and his American symphony orchestra in New York have been concentrating on truly off beat...
