Barcode: 0825646256778

Fairy-tale magic and sabre-rattling: With Tchaikovsky’s fantastic fairy-tale scores, the Russian ballet enjoyed its first heyday. With Borodin’s exotic Polovtsian Dances and Khachaturian’s fiery Sabre Dance, with captivating waltzes, marches and polkas, Russian composers created sensuous music full of exotic colour well into the 20th century, music that continues to delight audiences both on the ballet stage and in the concert hall.
