About this Recording

ADAM, A.: Giselle [Ballet] (Highlights) (Slovak Radio Symphony, Mogrelia)

Of his many works for the stage, Adolphe Adam’s ballet Giselle ou Les Wilis is the best-known. The story is based on a legend in which the Wilis, or ghosts of unmarried girls, seek revenge on the living. Speedily written amidst a hotbed of Parisian infatuations and given a timeless parochial setting, this archetypal romantic ballet has everything from unrequited love to deceit, drama, tragedy, and conciliatory resolution. Andrew Mogrelia has been acclaimed for conducting of ‘warmth, grace and vitality’. (The Penguin Guide on Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty 8.550490–92)
