Ernest Ansermet - The Royal Ballet Gala Performances. 2 SACDs + Booklet & outer slipcase). Conductor Ansermet keeps the pace moving, giving the listener the impression of a dance event rather than a dramatic concert hall reading. With the exception of some of the Tchaikovsky scenes, the music is light and remains so under Ansermet's gentle touch. Each ballet is given full attention by the players, something not always attained at Covent Garden during long ballet nights! The threat of eternity does have its merits. The recorded sound is simply amazing!

Royal Opera House Orchestra, Covent Garden, Ernest Ansermet. The creation of The Royal Ballet with its 130 dancers and its own school is one of the great romances of the theatre. Yet it started, in a most unlikely fashion in 1931, with six dancers attached to an opera house in an unfashionable and, to theatre goers, an unknown area of London. The rest as of course is history. This fine 2CD collection features recordings made by the Royal Opera House Orchestra, of some of the finest ballet music under the baton of maestro Ernest Ansermet. These recordings were made in 1957 at the legendary venue of Kingsway Hall.
