Annotation

This release seems dubious, because it combines claimed performances with Slatkin / Minnesota with standard Alfred Scholz artists. The ballet track lists are a good match for https://www.allmusic.com/album/mw0002007772, but they are also a good match for the standard Scholz performances, and share fingerprints with those.
