Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar


Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet has a strong claim to being the greatest ballet. Not only does it contain much of the composer's finest and most instantly appealing music, it is also considered one of the most exceptional musical realisations of Shakespeare

CD Reviews
CD of the Week
'This is music in which Gergiev has few peers today ... he brings an epic, symphonic and dramatic integrity to its vast, multifaceted canvas ... his London forces respond to Gergiev's often hair-raising volatility with some of their most dynamic playing - the death of Tybalt has rarely sounded more coruscating in its raw depiction of Lady Capulet's grief. Juliet's early music positively scampers with youthful delicacy and grace, and the love music shimmers with a rapt beauty ... the entire performance carries an inevitable tragic momentum'
Sunday Times (UK)

'one could be forgiven for thinking that the LSO is Russian, such is the passion and energy with which it attacks Prokofiev's score. The brass playing is superb ... the woodwind team is on fine form ... the LSO powerhouse strings are quite magnificent throughout. Gergiev's new version is hard to beat'
International Record Review (UK)

'Gergiev has courageously taken the complete score out of the ballet theater and into the concert hall, to make the music-drama stand on its own orchestrally as with Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Nutcracker, and Sleeping Beauty. The live recording is sensational in its realism'
***** Audiophile Audition (US)

Concert reviews
'The strings were supple and radiant ... The brass, much used by Prokofiev, were tirelessly accurate, and the woodwind especially characterful, with some of the orchestra's younger members playing out of their skins. The best ballets contain music almost too good to be wasted on dancers. Freed from the need to adopt dance tempi, this wonderful music swaggered, sparkled and shimmered as it rarely does in the theatre'
Mail on Sunday (UK)

'Most concert conductors only take bites out of Prokofiev's virile but lengthy ballet. Not Valery Gergiev. He knows that the complete score is a treasure chest of musical characterisation, orchestral colour, soaring melody and blasting drama: manna from heaven for himself and the London Symphony Orchestra'
The Times (UK)

'Gergiev and the LSO's performance was simply magnificent, not just in the quality of the orchestral playing but in the range of colours and delicacy Gergiev drew from his players' (UK)
