Notes & Reviews:

Sir Arthur Bliss, Master of the Queen's Music from 1953, was one of the leading British composers of his generation. The sparkling 'Melee Fantastique', which the composer considered to be his first ballet score, shows the influence of Stravinsky and Dyagilev's 'Ballets Russes'. This disc offers a rare opportunity to hear the complete masterpiece 'Checkmate', a collaboration with the legendary choreographer Ninette de Valois.
