• This compendium covers a golden age, a century during which the ballet emerged from being a court entertainment to the cutting-edge of 20th century modernity. The majority of the works represented on this 3 CD set are French or Russian. Classical ballet has its origins in the baroque opera-ballets of the 18th century French court and it is hardly surprising that the growing cosmopolitanism and wealth of the Russian court should see French composers and ballet –masters drawn to Russia. It was not long before Russian composers, too, began composing for the ballet.

• Various conductors including Von Karajan, Ansermet, Bernstein
