Description

Pyoyr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Swan Lake - Highlights

Russian State Orchestra, Dmitry Yablonsky 2002

Running Time: 72:43 mins

Tchaikovsky was ideally equipped to write the music for the ballet Swan Lake. His gift for vivid theatricality, for lively, memorable melodies, and for rich characterisation was allied to a mastery of dance rhythms. These quanities were augmented by his command of orchestral colour. And yet early performances were disappointingly received. It was only after some structual and choreographic revisions in 1895, two years after the composer's death, that the work was fully appreciated for the masterpiece that it is.
