Tchaikowsky* – La Belle Au Bois Dormant – Casse-Noisette – Le Lac Des Cygnes

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, but if the composer is long dead, how come Mozart is still doing appearances on Spotify?

    1. Oh wow. And they pride themselves of handling classical music. Much has still to happen in the world of streaming music.
