What Ballet Music Are You Listening To Now?

(1/6) > >>

OrchestralNut:
Well, here it is folks....... by popular demand, I am certain.  ;)

Our own thread dedicated to listening to ballet music!

Similar to the "What Opera Are You Listening..." thread, it seemed appropriate to recognize this music separately.

Happy Listening, Folks!  :)

OrchestralNut:
As for me, disc 5 of this marvelous set.

Weber - Invitation to the Dance (orchestrated by Berlioz)

Chopin - Les Sylphides (orchestrated by Roy Douglas)

Strauss family - Bal de Vienne from act II of Die Fledermaus

Luigini - *Ballet Egyptien

National Philharmonic Orchestra
*London Symphony Orchestra

Richard Bonynge

Florestan:
Not today but very recently, Swan Lake from this set.



Believe it or not, it was the first time I ever listened to the whole thing.

As an aside, why is a thread dealing with orchestral, non-vocal music filed under Opera and Vocal? ;D

This is the very question I’ve encountered several times when posting a thread about a Debussy, Ravel, etc. ballet and here’s something to consider: under the ‘Opera and Vocal’ heading on the forum’s homepage, this section is described as the following:

This board is for discussion of all vocal, opera and staged music, including ballet.
