Description: Two World Premiere Recordings mark this new release: "The Camellias" was a ballet premiered in New York by Balanchine in 1951 (why its title is German we are not told), suggested by Dumas' famous novel "La Dame aux camélias" and is somewhat evenly divided between vivacious dance scenes and scenes at Marguerite's grave while the radiant, hymn-like five-minute Ode was commissioned by Radio France in 1960 for a program on Botticelli. Sir Georg Solti Chamber Orchestra, Budapest; Kerry Stratton.
