DON QUIXOTE A ballet by Ludwig Minkus SYNOPSIS Don Quixote, who is a great lover of tales of chivalry, decides to set off on his travels in order to achieve great feats, which will bring glory to his name. As his sword-bearer, he chooses the loyal Sancho Panza. A street festival in Barcelona, in front of the tavern kept by Lorenzo. Kitri, daughter of the innkeeper, is flirting with Basil, the barber, who is in love with her. Finding them together Lorenzo, Kitri's father, chases Basil away: the barber isn't a good match for his daughter. Lorenzo intends Kitri to marry Gamache, a rich nobleman. Everybody greet the torero, Espada, and a street dancer. Don Quixote appears in the square, accompanied by Sancho Panza. Lorenzo invites Don Quixote into the inn. Sancho Panza is left in the square. But when young people in street deride Sancho, Don Quixote immediately hurries to his sword bearer's rescue. Don Quixote is astonished by the beauty of Lorenzo's daughter, Kitri. In his mind, she becomes Dulcinea, "the lady of his heart". But Kitri disappears. She has run off with Basil. Lorenzo, Gamache and Don Quixote set out to look for her. Kitri and Basil are hiding in a gypsy's camp. Near to the gypsies, a group of vagrant actors prepare for their show. Soon, Don Quixote appears. He watches the puppet show, and, led away by the visions of chivalry tales, rushes to the rescue of the theater shows’ heroes. The theater, the decorations and the puppets are destroyed. After that, he catches the sight of the windmills that are seen in the neighborhood and mistakes them for evil magicians. He rushes to fight them. Don Quixote, wounded after falling from a windmill, is in the forest, accompanied by Sancho Panza. He falls asleep. In his dreams, Don Quixote sees Dulcinea surrounded by dryads and fairies. In a tavern, the young people are dancing, Kitri and Basil among them. Suddenly they are found by Lorenzo and Gamache. Lorenzo wishes to make an immediate announcement of the betrothal of Kitri and Gamache. But Basil, by agreement with Kitri, pretends to take his life. Kitri begs Don Quixote to persuade her father to bless her love with her dying sweetheart. As soon as Lorenzo does that and agrees to their marriage, Basil jumps to his feet. There is no point in his pretending to be dead any longer. At Kitri and Basil's wedding, Don Quixote occupies a place of honor. He wishes the young couple happiness and sets off to his travels again. Alexander Glazunov (1865 - 1936) is one of the most eminent Russian composers, a brilliant symphonist and melodist, the author of numerous symphonic and instrumental works. He was the favorite pupil of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov; on the other hand, in his symphonic compositions, he became a successor of Tchaikovsky. For many years, Glazunov was the director of the St. Petersburg Conservatoire (later turned into Petrograd and then to Leningrad Conservatoire). He had a phenomenal musical memory; using his unique abilities, he (together with Rimsky-Korsakov) undertook the great task of finishing Alexander Borodin's opera Prince Igor, and wrote down the first movement of his Third Symphony. Two Concert Waltzes were composed in 1893-94. This was the time of a fresh upsurge of the composers' activity after a crisis in 1890-91. At the same time, several important works were written, including the 3d and the 4th symphonies. In the waltzes, Glazunov develops the tradition of this genre that descends from Mikhail Glinka's Waltz-Fantasy.

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of concertos for bassoon and orchestra performed by young soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra.

Rodion Tolmachev is one of the best Russian bassoonists of the new generation. A graduate of the St. Petersburg Conservatory and the Hannover University of Music, he has received prizes of a number of prestigious domestic and international competitions, including the first prizes of the Rimsky-Korsakov All-Russian Competition of Woodwind Instrument Performers in St. Petersburg and the Fernand Gillet-Hugo Fox Bassoon Competition in Provo, Utah, USA, a Grand Prize of the Japan Wind and Percussion Competition in Tokyo, a bronze medal of the ARD International Quintet Competition in Munich, and a Yamaha award, and also became a laureate of the European Cultural Foundation in Strasbourg.

Tolmachev is a soloist of the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra since 2004, performing with it around the world and participating in solo and ensemble concert programmes. Tolmachev’s solo album with bassoon works by French composers was released on the German label Dobringen und Grimm in 2012. Our release features works for bassoon and orchestra written in different ages - three concertos by Antonio Vivaldi (the history of the bassoon as an independent concert instrument began with his music), a romantic, radiant with bright colours concerto by Carl Maria von Weber, and an elegant, neo classical Concertino for bassoon, harp, piano and strings by the 20th century French master André Jolivet.

The chamber line-up of the celebrated orchestra of the Mariinskly Theatre is conducted by clarinetist and conductor Ivan Stolbov, a student of Alexander Titov and Vassily Sinaisky in the class of symphonic conducting of the St. Petersburg Conservatory.

The synopsis of the ballet Giselle

Act I - A rustic village

Giselle, a weak-hearted young girl who is adored by her native villagers, lives with her watchful mother, Berthe. Hilarion, the village gamekeeper, is desperately in love with Giselle. Prince Albrecht, a nobleman who is already engaged to a noblewoman named Bathilde, is bored and lonely with his everyday existence. Captivated by Giselle's frail beauty and innocence, Albrecht disguises himself as a peasant named Loys. After purchasing the cottage adjacent to Berthe's, he proceeds to shower Giselle with his affections.

Hilarion, filled with suspicion and jealousy, becomes enraged when Giselle falls madly in love with Albrecht and believes that they are engaged.

Berthe has a vision that her daughter will one day become a Wili, a jilted maiden who dies before her wedding night. The Wilis emerge between midnight and dawn to vengefully trap any man who enters their domain by forcing him to dance to his death.

Hilarion exposes Albrecht's disguise and proclaims that he is already betrothed to Bathilde. Overwhelmingly distraught and horrified, Giselle dies of a broken heart.

Act II - A forest clearing

Hilarion is discovered just before midnight keeping vigil by Giselle's tomb. As midnight approaches, the Wilis appear with their leader, Queen Myrta. This is the night Giselle is to be initiated as a Wili.

Albrecht, laden with feelings of guilt and remorse, visits Giselle's grave. He sees a vision of Giselle and follows it into the forest. At this point, Myrta discovers Hilarion in the forest and orders the Wilis to dance around him until he dies from exhaustion. She then discovers Albrecht and demands that he share the same fate as Hilarion but is unable to permeate the invisible bond of love that Giselle has for him.

At dawn, when the Wilis lose their power and must retreat to their dwelling place, Albrecht is saved and Giselle forgives him. Giselle returns with the Wilis and recognizes that now she will be one of them for the rest of time.
