Verdi: Ballet Music From Operas (Naxos: 8.572818-19)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This unique programme is the first time that all the ballet music from Verdi's operas has been brought together in a single recording. Although 'The Four Seasons' from 'I vespri siciliani' (The Sicilian Vespers) and the ballet scenes from 'Aida' and 'Otello' have survived, substantial pieces from 'Il trovatore' and 'Don Carlo' are more often cut, while the ballet from 'Jerusalem' is all but unknown. Jose Serebrier's recordings with the Bournemouth Symphony have resulted in some great successes with unusual repertoire. This release will be of interest both to opera enthusiasts and to those eager to explore Verdi's neglected and relatively small body of concert music.

Jose Serebrier's work with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra has resulted in some great successes with unusual repertoire, such as the 'vivid performances' (Gramophone) of Ned Rorem's symphonies (8.559149) and their acclaimed series of Stokowski transcriptions. This release unearths plenty of barely known Verdi to go along with more familiar ballet scores, and will be of unique interest to opera enthusiasts as well as those already attracted by his brilliant and better-known orchestral gems.

GRAMMY?«-winner conductor and composer Jose Serebrier is one of today's most recorded classical artists. He has received 39 GRAMMY?« nominations in recent years. His First Symphony (8.559648) was premiered by Leopold Stokowski (who premiered several of his works) when Serebrier was 17, as a last-minute replacement for the then still unplayable Ives Fourth Symphony.
