Format: Audio CD
Not only are the ballets under-rated and obscured, Leo Delibes (1836-1891) continued to be forgotten figure in French Romantic music. Whereas Piotr Illyich Tchaikovsky of Russia, his near contemporary, was the instrumental force in the development of ballets after the mid 19th century, so was Delibes. His ballets, especially Sylvia (to which Tchaikovsky greatly admired) continued to be popular until the 1920s, when productions of these works decreased noticeably.
Recordings therefore play an important role of allowing us to explore and appreciate the "hidden treasures." What is even more wonderful is that rival complete recordings of these works are now available (except La Source, which is still under one recording). The three ballet compilation was taken from previously recorded works under Bonynge on separate 2-disc sets (Bonynge recorded Sylvia twice, one with the National Philharmonc and the other with the Swiss Romande Orchestra, both equally well played, with polish, passion, and affection).
Richard Bonynge, always a pioneer in recording neglected works of composers (like Offenbach, Lehar, Strauss, Adam, and so forth), brough out the passion and discipline from his orchestras in this entire 4-compact disc set. The National Philharmonic (with Coppelia), the New Philharmonia (with Sylvia), and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House (with La Source) provided us with sparkling, affectionate performances. The compilation is well done with the recording sound very realistic and natural (and sparkling as well).
The other complete recordings of the ballets, such as those featuring Dorati/Fistoulari in the Mercury Living Presence Recordings (3 CD set) or Zinman under Philips (in Coppelia) or Mogrelia under Naxos (in Sylvia) are also well done.

Tchaikovsky's music often seems to dominate the world of ballet. But it's worth remembering that Tchaikovsky himself admired Delibes, whose work elevated music for the ballet to new heights.
Coppelia is the best known and most often performed of the Delibes ballets. It's easy to see why: the mazurka is lively, the czardas stirring. The music for the mechanical dolls has a wonderful music-box quality, and the melodic waltz of the hours is every bit as memorable as Tchaikovsky's waltz of the flowers.
Sylvia is seldom performed in its entirety, but the pizzicatti is instantly recognizable. Balanchine added the Sylvia pas de deux to his production of Coppelia, an interpolation that is often copied. (An oddity of ballet history: Coppelia was performed en travesti, with women taking the men's parts - hence Coppelia has no pas de deux of its own.)
La Source was originally created as a kind of musical contest, with half written by Delibes and half by Minkus. This album includes the full score, so you can judge for yourself why Delibes stayed in Paris and Minkus went to Russia.
My only criticism is the awkward way the three ballets are divided among four CDs. But conductor Bonynge has a definite flair for 19th century music. He has done us all a favor by putting full-length versions of all three Delibes ballets in this boxed set.

Leo Delibes had a special talent for writing captivating ballet music. Tchaikovsky, the greatest ballet composer of all, was an ardent admirer of Delibes' ballets. While Coppelia is Delibes' masterpiece, both Sylvia and La Source are worthy compositions. You will never hear these works performed better than in these recordings by Richard Bonynge -- THE oustanding conductor of 19th century stage and programmatic music. This set is both a bargain and a treat.

Format: Audio CD
Los ballets de Delibes marcan un punto de ruptura en la tradición de la música para ballet, ya que se puede decir que hasta este momento, la música que acompañaba a los bailarines prácticamente no tenía la menor importancia, solo era un fondo adecuado para que las estrellas de la danza hicieran sus evoluciones en el escenario. Delibes cambió esto al crear música realmente grandiosa, la cual puede escucharse perfectamente de forma independiente. Fue tal el impacto que tuvo Delibes sobre sus predecesores, que el mismo Tchaikovsky reconoció la enorme influencia que ejerció sobre sus obras maestras, los ballets "el lago de los cisnes", "la bella durmiente" y "el cascanueces". Los tres ballets de Delibes ("La source", "Coppelia" y "Sylvia") en la actualidad siguen representándose con cierta frecuencia en los escenarios (sobre todo los dos últimos), y junto con el "Gisselle" de Adam y los tres mencionados de Tchaikovsky, forman la base sobre la que se construyó prácticamente todo el ballet moderno; así que si Ud. es aficionado a este tipo de representaciones, estos discos deben estar en su colección. La interpretación de Bonynge a estos ballets de Delibes lo identifican fácilmente como uno de los mejores directores "de foso", llamados así debido a sus estupendas conducciones a música de escenario, como óperas y ballets. Si le interesa este disco, le recomiendo muchísimo también la colección con los 3 ballets completos de Tchaikovsky, también con Bonynge, verá que no se arrepentirá y que los escuchará con placer una y otra vez.
