Recordings of Verdi's ballet scores are soon to come

entertainment | Aug 13, 2011 | By Speroforum

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra of the UK, under the baton of maestro José Serebrier, recently recorded for Naxos Giuseppe Verdi’s complete ballet music from the Italian master's operas.

Maestro Serebrier, a composer in his own right, had long dreamed of this achievement, having rummaged opera house basements to locate the scores of several pieces, some which have rarely been performed.

Giuseppe Verdi started including ballets in his operas upon the request of the Paris Opera, but often omitted them from his published scores. The double CD of Verdi's complete ballet music scores, produced by Naxos, is scheduled for worldwide release in March 2012. Naxos has released recordings of Serebrier's compositions in the past, including his Symphony No. 1.
