Probably the Happiest CD I Own! 11 Feb 2011
By David Bower - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have owned this CD for several years and have enjoyed it more times than I can remember; it is one of the happiest collections of music that I have in my library and has brought me many hours of enjoyment. This is the one I play when I just want to relax!

It starts with the complete ballet music to La Boutique Fantasque, a fanciful story about a toy shop whose toys come to life at night. The music of Rossini as arranged for ballet by Respighi is truly charming and brings to sparkling life the adventures at the toy shop during the day and during the magic hours at night when the toys come to life.

The liner notes tell us the ballet was first performed in 1919 at the Alhambra Theatre in London with Lionide Massine choreographing the ballet and dancing the male lead. The charm of the music makes it an ideal concert piece.

This is followed by more Rossini music as arranged by Britten for ballet and includes Soirees musicales, composed in 1936 and Matinees musicales which was commissioned for the American Ballet Company and first performed in 1941.

This is a CD that any lover of ballet music will thoroughly enjoy; I recommend it highly!

Delightful 6 Dec 2012
By Imlac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Delightful music, delightfully played. Bonynge is at his best with this kind of music. Respighi has created a most enjoyable setting of Rossini's music.
