Description

Ludwig Minkus, born in Vienna, gained fame in Russia with his ballet scores in the 1860s and '70s. In Don Quixote, a romantic young couple outshine the doleful Spanish knight, while La Bayadère breathes the air of the Himalayas. If the Italian-born Riccardo Drigo also made his career in St Petersburg's imperial theatres, three further contemporaries of Minkus - Eduard Helsted, Holger Paulli and Niels Gade - are remembered by their compositions for their fellow Dane, the great choreographer August Bournonville.
