[Arthaus 100713] TCHAIKOVSKY: Swan Lake (Bolshoi Ballet, 1989)
- Classical music composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky From the Bolshoi Theatre 1989. Swan Lake is the very essence of classical ballet and has a rather venerable history of its own. First choreographed in 1877 by the great Marius Petipa for the Bolshoi, this original choreography has since been tweaked by almost every choreographer to get hold of it down through the years. Yuri Grigorovich keeps the general outline of the story of a prince who falls in love with the mythic half-woman, half-swan Odette (only to betray her when she appears to him in disguise as Odile). Grigorovich however added a controversial twist with his inclusion of a psychological dimension to the proceedings: the evil sorcerer cast as the dark twin of the hero-prince. The pearl of this production is undoubtedly Alla Mikhalchenko as Odette-Odile. Her impressive technique and brilliant acting gives the character a new expressive dimension.

The stylish grandeur of choreographer and artistic director Oleg Vinogradov's production shows the entire company at its best. The highest tradition in dance continues with Larissa Lezhnina, one of Kirov's brightest new talents, brilliant as Princess Aurora, and Farukh Ruzimatov's performance in the role of Prince Desire demonstrates both power and grace. It may be a truism to say that Russians interpret Russian music best, but based on this stunning Kirov Ballet performance it's excitingly and exhilaratingly accurate. From the principal dancers to the last member of the ensemble, the grace and mastery of this world-class company is clearly in evidence. www.naxos.com

TCHAIKOVSKY: Swan Lake - Лебединое Озеро Passing Through: www.youtube.com - Friends, Please visit my Poet friend "Passing Through's" YouTube channel: www.youtube.com , and support him - Thanks :) Valse (Corps de Ballet) Swan Lake (Russian: Лебединое Озеро, Lebedinoye Ozero, Swan Lake) is a ballet by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky presented in either four Acts, four Scenes (primarily outside Russia and Eastern Europe) or three Acts, four Scenes (primarily in Russia and Eastern Europe), based on a libretto by Vladimir Begichev and (possibly) Vasily Geltser, fashioned from an ancient German legend, which tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. It was originally choreographed by Julius Reisinger to the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (opus 20). First presented as The Lake of the Swans by the Ballet of the Moscow Imperial Bolshoi Theatre on February 20/March 4, 1877 (Julian/Gregorian calendar dates) in Moscow, Russia. Although the ballet is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their stagings both choreographically and musically on the revival by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, staged for the Imperial Ballet, first presented January 15, 1895 at the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. For this revival, Tchaikovsky's score was revised by the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatre's kapellmeister Riccardo Drigo. (We appreciate Wikipaedia's contributions in the descriptions here)

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Serenade Melancolique, Op. 26 for Violin and Orchestra . Imperial 45 RPM record. I've transferred it myself. Imperial was a budget sub-label of EMI, marketed at the European continent, Germany especially. They started ambitiously in 1954, and recorded the core repertoire in rapid succession. Kayser, later in his live the violinist in the Gobel trio Berlin, was one of the young artists recording for Imperial. His 10# LP of Bruch's violin concerto is a well sought item among record collectors, This Serenade was recorded around 1955. For three years I have a website, where I post "out-of-copyright" (in the Netherlands) classical lp's and 78rpm's. It is updated every Friday: homepages.ipact.nl Enjoy!

Pezzo i forma di sonatina: Andante non troppo; Allegro moderato Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48, premiered in 1880, remains today one of the late Romantic era's most definitive compositions. In his score, Tchaikovsky supposedly wrote, "The larger the string orchestra, the better will the composer's desires be fulfilled." Serenade for Strings has 4 movements: I. Pezzo i forma di sonatina: Andante non troppo; Allegro moderato; this was an homage to Mozart II. Valse: Moderato; Tempo di valse III. Élégie: Larghetto elegiaco IV.
