Spelling a composer’s name has always been difficult. Was this the regular spelling in uhm… what country? Maybe in a certain time? It is now Tchaikovsky, but in Dutch he is called Tsjaikovski. Now try to find him on Spotify. I give up, anyone else?
A collection of famous fragments from his ballets. you know, the famous ones with Degas-like dream girls in swirling flimsy dresses. An image of which is to be found on the cover of this record. The music is a little bit too well known for my taste. I did like this record though. A lot.
Discogs says this is a re-release. Imagine that: this record, as old as it is, is a re-release. It was probably a best seller.
Talk about Spotify: ever tried to find good classical music? This has been a complaint for me for a long time now. Streaming services and tagging. It is an absolute disaster. Sometimes it also has to do with the app you’re using to play it. I won’t get into too much details (see https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2015/06/04/411963624/why-cant-streaming-services-get-classical-music-right?t=1619686561905), but if the composer is long dead, how come Mozart is still doing appearances on Spotify?
