Definitive CD Recording of Le Corsaire - all three acts

1 post in this topic

Hello everybody - the definitive recording of all three acts of Le Corsaire, the Anna-Marie Holmes version (partly inspired by her mentor Natalia Dudinskaya), which ABT and a lot of other companies do, has just become available in a 2-CD set, or as a download. You can find it here.

This was recorded in January, 2011, by the Evergreen Orchestra of Taiwan, with Kevin Galiè directing his revision of the score. Holmes paid great attention that all of the tempi are correct, and even offered alternate tempi for the bigger variations in an appendix to the CD. It seems that this is the only commercially available, non-pirated, professional recording of the complete ballet, including the Russian interpolations as most modern companies perform it.
