This is quite a find – a CD containing 4 arrangements of ballet music, 3 not previously recorded.If you love Tchaikovsky do not hesitate. Above all Goldstone is a master pianist, not only technically, but also catching the true spirit of such wonderful music. Ballet dancers will find it almost impossible to resist dancing even if they retired years ago.
Normally we listen to this music played by an orchestra but this is a splendid alternative. Well recorded with a lovely tone. The major offering is music from Sleeping Beauty (all of Act 3) plus excerpts from the Nutcracker and Swan Lake. Finally, the notes written by Goldstone are excellent.
