Synopsis

Album Description
Hänssler Classic is proud to present the first in a series of recordings dedicated to the music composed for Ballets Russes in performance under the expert musical direction of Sylvain Cambreling.The Ballets Russes was established in 1909 by Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev, and created a sensation in Western Europe because of the great vitality and creativity of Russian ballet compared to what was current in France at the time. It became the most influential ballet company in the 20th century and that influence has lasted to the present day. The Ballets Russes featured sets and costumes designed by such artists as Braque, Picasso, Dali, and Utrillo and music by composers that included Debussy, Milhaud, Poulenc, Prokofiev, Ravel, Satie and, most notably, Igor Stravinsky, whom Diaghilev spotted when he was virtually unknown and whose career he launched.
