All three ballets by Tchaikovsky in one release!
Tchaikovsky's ballets, Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake, are by far the most popular ballet music ever written, and count among the master's most famous works. Tchaikovsky, tormented genius, found relief in writing these brilliant, featherweight works, conjuring up fantasy worlds of feel good fairy tales. Some numbers have become top?10 Classical Favourites, such as the Flower Waltz, Waltz of the Swans, Dance of the Sugar plum Fairy and many more.
The magnificent Royal Philharmonic Orchestra does justice to each musical world, under the baton of three different and seasoned conductors, each of whom very much makes his mark on these multi‐interpretable works of genius.
