Info zu Meyerbeer: Ballet Music from the Operas

Giacomo Meyerbeer was one of the most significant opera composers of all time. The four grand operas represented here brought him his greatest fame, with Les Huguenots being one of the most performed of all operas. Meyerbeer’s contributions to the French tradition of opéra-ballet acquired legendary status, including the ghostly Ballet of the Nuns from Robert le Diable; the exotic orchestral colour of the Marche indienne in L’Africaine; and the virtuoso Ballet of the Skaters from Le Prophète in which the dancers famously glided over the stage using roller skates.

“This is a most entertaining collection with just a few dull moments – Meyerbeer’s fault, not Nesterowicz’s – and, as expected, the orchestra really enters into the spirit of this music...One or two dull patches can’t take the shine off this engaging disc; great fun.” (MusicWeb International)

“70 minutes of unremitting ballet music may not be the most intellectually challenging fare. Yet, listening to this music...well played by the Barcelona SO, you have to admire its supreme orchestral virtuosity. However ephemeral, the effects, culminating in L’Africaine’s Indian March, are brilliant.” (Sunday Times, UK)
