Richard Bonynge

About

Celebrating Richard Bonynge’s 90th birthday (29 September 2020) and his incredible ballet legacy on Decca, with a brand new edition that reads like an A-Z of the genre.

The release of this edition, coincides with a new book entitled ‘Chalet Monet – Inside the home of Dame Joan Sutherland & Richard Bonynge’ to be released worldwide this September.

45 CDs compiled by Cyrus Meher-Homji, a long-time friend of Richard Bonynge, including familiar scores by Tchaikovsky and Delibes alongside works revived by Maestro Bonynge throughout his career including works by Adam, Massenet, Minkus, Burgmüller, Auber and Offenbach.

Plus rare ballet music and dance sequences from the world of opera, including Donizetti, Gounod, Rossini, Saint-Saëns, Verdi and Berlioz, as well as the first release on CD of the overture to Die Fledermaus from Bonynge’s recording of ballet music arrangements of Johann Strauss.

Includes all Bonynge’s ‘ballet recital’ records, of which particular highlights include the ‘Méditation’ from Thaïs with the young Nigel Kennedy as solo violinist, and the Art of the Prima Ballerina anthology which was conceived by Bonynge and one of the reigning prima ballerinas of the 20th century, Dame Alice Markova.

Included by way of bonus are his recordings of cello concertos by composers otherwise known for their ballet scores (Massenet, Auber, Popper), and Bonynge’s vibrant recordings of Overtures and Entr’actes, as well as ‘opera-ballets’ from Faust, Il trovatore, Alcina and La favorita, which have only previously appeared as part of the complete opera sets.

2-piece box, 45 CDs, original jackets, 144pp perfect bound booklet with authoritative liner notes and synopses by Paul Westcott and Mark Pullinger. Newly commissioned illustrations alongside original illustrations from the original LP booklets.
