Notes & Reviews:
Melodiya presents a recording of one of the outstanding ballet works of the late 20th century! The title sheet of the score has a dedication "To Maya Plisetskaya, always." The great ballet dancer (and Shchedrin's spouse) not only initiated the creation of this work, she was also a choreographer and danced the main part. The premiere took place at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1971. Valeri Levental designed the stage setting, and Pierre Cardin created the costumes. Yuri Temirkanov, chief conductor of the Bolshoi Theatre, was at the stand. The ballet was one of the most successful productions of the Bolshoi Theatre in the 1970s and '80s, and was shown more than a hundred times during 13 years.Notes & Reviews:
