Title: Triumph of Neptune
Label: Naxos

Lord Berners' early music was avant-garde in style earning the admiration of Stravinsky, and while it was soon to become more accessible, it never lost it's distinctive style and flavor. The Triumph of Neptune is one of his major works and his most ambitious ballet score, commissioned by Diaghilev with choreography by Balanchine. A ballet-pantomime-harlequinade, it's inconsequential plot features music as diverse as it is brilliantly inventive. L'uomo dai baffiisa delicious ballet for puppets with stripped-back instrumentation, and Philip Lane's deft orchestrations of Valses bourgeoises and Polka offer ripe wit.
