Dorati, Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra
"Delibes: Coppelia" (Vinyl)

As the inside of the LP jacket says, a successful light comic ballet is a rarity. Yet, Delibes' 'Coppelia' is considered such because of its uncommon endurance.

This was released previously on the Mercury label (not a double-LP 'Golden Import') with the fun colorful artwork and sturdy vinyl that I've grown to appreciate.  Still, it's beneficial for me to have this in my collection as every once in a while a movement from this is requested for viola auditions.  It's nice to be able to put the music into context.
