Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of José Serebrier, recently recorded Giuseppe Verdi’s complete ballet music from the operas. This has been a long-standing dream of Mr Serebrier, who has rummaged opera house basements to locate the scores of several pieces, some which have rarely been performed. Verdi started including ballets in his operas on the request of the Paris Opera, but often omitted them from his published scores. The double CD with Verdi’s complete ballet music is scheduled for worldwide release in March 2012 on Naxos.
