Leo Delibes – Extended Ballet Suites

ref00125

An essential purchase for any fans of the ballet, this absolutely wonderful album deserves a home on your shelves. Not only does Reference Recordings deliver another stunning sonic product, but the playing is outstanding and makes something very special out of this music. Ballet recordings are usually best complete in my mind because larger suites inevitably lose the story or end up in odd arrangements. This isn’t always the case– Eugene Ormandy recorded expanded suites for all three of the Tchaikovsky ballets– but it takes a very fine maestro to give the music its due. [Source]
