The Darcey Bussell Ballet Collection

Drive Featured Album, starting Monday 9 November 2015 after 6pm.

For this double album, Darcey Bussell has personally chosen the quintessential ballet masterworks, including extracts from Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and Romeo & Juliet.

This is all glorious music that has played a vital part in her stage career, as well as pieces that she says she most enjoys listening to. Little known gems that deserve a wider hearing include Britten's Prince of the Pagodas and Prokofiev's Cinderella.

Since Bussell is the UK’s leading advocate for ballet and dance in general, it's hard to dispute with her choices - all tracks that are sure to keep ballet fans happy over the festive season.
