Notes & Reviews:

The second of Tchaikovsky's three full length ballets, The Sleeping Beauty was initially given a lukewarm reception by the Tsar. Today it is regarded as the greatest achievement of Russian ballet music in the 19th century. Based on the Perrault fairy-tale La belle au bois dormant and choreographed by the legendary Petipa, this work overflows with radiant and joyous inventiveness. These highlights are taken from the complete recording on Naxos 8.550490-92, given *** recommended status by The Penguin Guide which praises Andrew Mogrelia's conducting for its 'warmth, grace and vitality'. Andrew Mogrelia has had a varied career of concerts, recording and work with major dance companies. He has worked with the English National, Dutch National, Finnish National, Norwegian National ballets, Netherlands Dance Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theater.

This highlights disc is taken from a complete recording of the ballet that was highly recommended by the Penguin Guide. Running for the best part of 80 minutes it represents very good value indeed... Mogrelia's is certainly one of the best recordings currently available. The Sleeping Beauty is a fabulous score and it's very difficult to decide which particular 80 minute selection actually constitutes the highlights. On the whole, Naxos has done a good job with their decision-making and at least the music is presented in the order in which it appears in the complete score.
