Adam: Giselle (Highlights CD) – Andrew Mogrelia

Composer: Adolphe Adam
Artist: Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Andrew Mogrelia
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Naxos
CD Release Date: June 26, 2012

Of his many works for the stage, Adolphe Adam’s ballet Giselle ou Les Wilis is the best known. The story is based on a legend in which the Wilis, or ghosts of unmarried girls, seek revenge on the living. Speedily written amidst a hotbed of Parisian infatuations and given a timeless parochial setting, this archetypal romantic ballet has everything from unrequited love to deceit, drama, tragedy, and conciliatory resolution.

Andrew Mogrelia has been acclaimed for conducting with “warmth, grace and vitality” (The Penguin Guide). He has had a varied career of concerts, recording and work with major dance companies such as the English National, Dutch National, Finnish National, and Norwegian National ballets, Netherlands Dance Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theater.
