Overview

André Previn's 1976 recording of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake" has been admired since it first appeared on vinyl, and this EMI Classics twofer presents the performance with the London Symphony Orchestra in a digital remastering from 1988. As with Previn's renditions of "The Sleeping Beauty" and "Nutcracker" from the same period, this fine recording of the complete "Swan Lake" is valuable for its lucid interpretation, sterling playing, vital rhythms, and glorious sound, all characteristics of the conductor's finest recordings with this orchestra. Tchaikovsky's dance music is conveyed with dynamic energy, rich sonorities, elegant expression, and ecstatic climaxes, so the true brilliance of the score is readily apparent; newcomers and listeners who only know famous excerpts or the various suites will be impressed with the wealth of melodies and inventive musical ideas to be discovered in the full work. EMI's 1976 recording was analog, but it was produced with the finest engineering of the time, so this ADD reissue has all the clarity and bright colors of the original LPs with virtually no traces of hiss and absolutely no distortion in the transfer.

I love classical music and this was a great addition to my collection. Swan Lake is one of the most beautiful ballets and this CD is expertly done.
