This is the definitive recording of all three acts of Le Corsaire, the Anna-Marie Holmes version (partly inspired by her mentor Natalia Dudinskaya), which ABT and many other companies perform. It is available in a 2-CD set, or as a download.


Le Corsaire was recorded in January, 2011, by the Evergreen Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan, with Kevin Galiè directing his orchestration of the score. Holmes paid great attention to ensure all of the tempi are correct, and even offered alternate tempi for the bigger variations in an appendix to the CD.


This is the only commercially available, non-pirated, professional recording of the complete ballet, including the Russian interpolations as most modern companies perform it.

During the recording of Kevin Galiè's re-orchestration of La Bayadère, by this Taiwanese orchestra, Anna-Marie Holmes marked the steps on the recording floor, indicating the correct tempi for each dance. It makes this unique recording, conducted by Mr. Galiè, suitable both for practice as well as staging of the ballet.


It is available as a download or a physical 2-CD set.

The lovely Second Mass of Charles-René has never before been recorded, and its composer is most often remembered as a teacher of the young Maurice Ravel. Yet Charles-René was a much-respected and active member of the music scene of turn-of-the-19th-century Paris, a colleague of Charles-Marie Widor.

The Second Mass is presented here by the MIT Women’s Chorale, directed by Kevin Galiè. Enhancing the performance of the Mass are the lovely voices of Anna Ward, soprano, and Stephanie Scarcella, mezzo-soprano, singers with active careers in the New England area, as well as the beautiful organ accompaniment of Susan DeSelms. The organ of United Parish Church (formerly Harvard Congregational), Brookline, Massachusetts is the 1932 Aeolian-Skinner instrument. The recording includes sacred motets from composers whose music was part of Charles-René's musical environment: César Franck and Gabriel Fauré.

Kevin Galiè, who has directed the Chorale since 2008, is featured in a performance of organ works by Gabriel Pierné, a near-exact contemporary of Charles-René.
