Editor's info:
Choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, The Royal Ballet's 2011 production of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was their first full-scale commission in 20 years and was instantly acclaimed as a classic. Joby Talbot's score to the production, performed on this new recording by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, captures perfectly the madcap-yet-enchanting mood of the production – described by the New York Times as "the trump card for 'Alice'".

Also included on this disc is an earlier work for dance by Talbot created in collaboration with Christopher Wheeldon, 'Fools Paradise'.

"It's official: the Royal Ballet has a perennial hit on its hands… What truly sets it all spinning is the shimmering, urgent and mischievous music of the composer Joby Talbot." The Times

“[Fool's Paradise] is really a very impressive score, unavailable elsewhere, which alone makes this disc most worthwhile, and it is superbly handled by an orchestra of 43 players.” MusicWeb International, 12th June 2013

“[Talbot] shows himself able to create danceable textures while providing a narrative flow in his music, he can create distinct musical characterisation for his principal characters, and he has a melodic gift which regularly blossoms.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2013

“Talbot's Alice ballet score stands in the line of Prokofiev's Cinderella: tuneful, strongly characterised, with glittering orchestral colouring.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 *****
