Description:

Ludwig Minkus composed some of the most important full-length ballet scores during the golden age of classical ballet in Russia in the second half of the 19th century. His works, which often involved exotic settings like Spain and India, included Don Quixote and La Bayadère, and he frequently contributed additional music to existing ballets such as Paquita. Extracts from those three aforementioned works are heard here. Minkus's successor was Riccardo Drigo, who also wrote extra numbers for existing ballets such as a pas de deux for Le Corsaire, which has firmly established itself as a showpiece in its own right outside the complete Corsaire. The other works included in this album were composed variously by three Danish composers (Holger Paulli, Eduard Helsted and Niels Gade) who all wrote works for the great Danish choreographer August Bournonville[]

Description:

New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance's heartrending collection of poetry and essays recounts a dark chapter of her own life, her first marriage to an alcoholic a powerful look at the emotional cost of addiction and an inspiring story of courage and triumph in the wake of crushing defeat Before she found fame as a bestselling mystery author, Judith Jance wrestled with the anguish of being married to an alcoholic. For years she channeled her pain into words, composing the poems in this moving volume, first published in 1984, a year before her debut novel. In searing and direct language, After the Fire chronicles the collapse of Jance's first marriage under the weight of her husband's addiction--and her own unwitting denial and codependence while she struggled to find herself. "I will not be the price of your redemption," she wrote then. "I will not pay my life to ransom yours." An intimate, deeply personal look into a wrenching time in Jance's life, After the Fire is a portrait of addiction and its insidious effects on lives and love. It illuminates universal truths about unbearable loss and finding the courage to carry on, and offers inspiration and profound insight into the heart and work of a beloved bestselling author.[]
