Right now, we're championing the recording of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by André Previn. It’s available on Apple Music and you can stream it now or save it to your library.

May’s Essential Classical Album as chosen by Apple Music celebrates the anniversary of Tchaikovsky's birth this month with his beloved Swan Lake, a story full of magic, love, and deceit depicted through a score of irresistible melodies. In this 1976 recording, André Previn leads the musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra along an enthralling musical journey, one that is in some moments lively and full of flair, yet in others soft and delicate. Previn, who passed away in February of this year, was Principal Conductor of the LSO at the time of this recording and is renowned for his talent across many musical genres. However, he described himself as "a complete Romantic" and had a particular fondness for ballets.

Here online, we're giving one listener the chance to win a year's subscription to Apple Music.
