Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake - Ballet Suite - Sinfonia of London/John Hollingsworth
GSC011DL (STEREO) - Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake - Ballet Suite - Sinfonia of London/John Hollingsworth - Englishconductor John Hollingsworth is known primarily as a documentary and films conductor, especially in the mid-5os as Music Director for Hammer Films. He had associations with the Royal Ballet and Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and occasionally made recordings of ballet music. This particular recording, from 1959, is quite enjoyable, and has moments of great beauty. I have added some bass and ambience to the recording, as it sounded a bit too studio-bound. The result is a more open quality, allow the music to bloom. Quite a bargain for both the CD and MP3 download. Thanks to John Whitmore for the LP transcription.
