Charles Mackerras’s score for the ballet Pineapple Poll is a patchwork quilt of tunes from Gilbert and Sullivan operas. It has become a firm favourite and makes delightful listening; so too does the compilation from Verdi’s music that is The Lady and the Fool, another ballet about the love of a penniless clown for a rich society beauty. Mackerras and the LPO clearly enjoy themselves with these lively, radiant scores. Ian Lace
