Notes and Editorial Reviews

I Musici de Montréal under the direction of Yuli Turovsky presents a diverse programme of dances ranging from the classical elegance of Haydn's 'Twelve German Dances' to the distinctive colours of Komitas's 'Armenian Dances' and Skalkottas's 'Greek Dances'. The works on this disc illustrate the various ways in which dance has informed and inspired composers. Since the earliest times, composers have written music especially for social dancing, in aristocratic circles or in public ballrooms. Much of the repertoire on this disc is rare, making the programme very unique. Recorded in: L'Église de la Nativite de la Sainte Vierge, La Prairie, Quebec 17-24 June 2001 Producer(s) Ralph Couzens Sound Engineer(s) Ralph Couzens Christopher Brooke Read more (Assistant) Read less
