"This is not a great performance, but decent if you want two hard-to-find ballets on one disc. I was looking for a good Apollo, though, and I find this one quite dull and insensitive. The jazzy, mid-century American lightness of the score is lost on this orchestra, who play instead as if it were written a hundred years earlier. Their Orpheus is much better, so this is a good buy for someone looking for that ballet at a decent price.
Note: If you are looking for Apollo, remember also to search "Apollon Musagete.""
