La Fille Mal Gardee
I fell in love with this music when only 12 years old and bought this recording. Now (decades later!) I am delighted to see it is still current and excellent quality for my iPod (my record is long since gone). This version will always be for me the definitive one, with beautiful clarity and contrasts of mood. Well done iTunes for stocking it!
A Beautiful Ballet and a Lovely Album
This is a great first ballet for kids and one to be appreciated by adults as well for its technical difficulty and beautiful staging. The production hasn't changed in over 40 years and so this album is still current and - happily - still sounds good
