Afternoon Classics - Tuesday, January 12, 2010

It always seems that Romeo and Juliet get all the billing and poor little Cinderella gets the left-overs. Hmmmm.
Well, today it is Cinderella who will get top billing. The first two hours will be dedicated to the performance of the complete ballet, music supplied by Sergei Prokofiev.

Cinderella, The complete ballet, Op. 87 by Sergei Prokofiev; Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting the Cleveland Orchestra.
Overture: La Cenerentola(Cinderella) by Gioacino Rossini with Gabriele Ferro conducting the Cappella Coloniensis.
String Quartet No. 12 in F, Op. 96 "American" by Antonin Dvorak performed by the Cleveland Quartet.
"Poeme Lyrique" in D flat, Op. 12 of Alexander Glazunov; Valeri Polyansky and the Russian State Symphony Orchestra
Symphony No. 2 in C minor, Op. 25 of Reinhold Gliere performed by Zdenek Macal and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.
Sonata for cello and piano, No. 1 of Bohuslav Martinu performed by Janos Starker - cello; Rudolf Firkusny - piano.

A short list but an awful lot of music!
