I have been searching for a cd of the Swan Lake supplementary music that is used for the Balanchine Tchaikovsky pa de deux. Does anyone know where I can purchase a copy of this music? I'm planning on doing the pointe variation from the pa de deux for an audition tape along with another variation, but I can't find a copy of the supplementary music...even on the internet. Actually I found one, but it can only be ordered in the U.K., and it would complicated to have to change American dollors to Euros. I actually do have the music on tape, but I will be needing it on cd. Any suggestions? Where can I get this music? Thank you...

Well, I know it's on the Decca set of 3 Tchaikovsky ballets, with the National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Richard Bonynge.

The Decca number is 460 411-2, the IPC is 0-2894604112-3.


It is selection #10 on CD #2.


I am certain that others will have additional sources, but this is the recording I prefer for actual performance tempi.


Best of luck--

You can click on the Amazon.com link at the top right-hand of your screen.....


search classical music, keywords Tchaikovsky and Bonynge. On the second page of listings, you'll see "Tchaikovsky: the 3 Ballets."




It is a 6 CD set and worth every penny.


Aside from getting a great set of music, you will help support BalletAlert through using the Amazon link here.....

That's an AMAZING price on a 6 CD set...I would definitely get it if I didn't already have all three ballets separately. It is the full ballet of each one, right?

Yes, it's the complete ballet.

And, you know, nowhere is it written that you can't have more than one recording of a work.... :rolleyes:


There is another wonderful Bonynge/Decca set with Sylvia and Coppelia.....
