5.0 out of 5 stars ROMEO, JULIET, SERGEI & ANDRE 30 Sep 2011
By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another first-class reissue of first-class playing and musicianship in a beautiful and difficult score. How fortunate we are, not least considering how little it costs.

I have never seen Romeo and Juliet on stage, but the synopsis (absolutely necessary, I'd say) provided in the liner suggests to me that it must be monstrously difficult for the director and producers, to say nothing of the dancers. There are no fewer than 52 separate numbers, only 3 of them lasting more than 5 minutes. The changes of scene and mood are often abrupt, and what with one or two quarrels, fights and duels to the death I suspect that I could never enjoy it done on stage through nervousness about what might go wrong. To be appreciated it is probably best heard just as music, in sound only.

That of course means that the music must be good enough to stand on its own as a concert suite, especially one lasting all but 2 and ½ hours. No composer ever (I hope) wrote an `abstract' orchestral suite of such daunting dimensions and variety, and it is the background narrative thread that gives coherence to this one. Prokofiev certainly gets my vote for the way he holds my interest all the way through, so next up for inspection is the conductor - can he do justice to what the composer has confronted him with?

I have some theories of my own regarding Previn. At the tangible level he shows a mastery of keeping orchestral textures clear and transparent, and I first realised this when I heard him perform Brahms, always a challenge in that respect. Is he even a little too cool at times? Very likely, but this is not Brahms, and his special touch when applied to Prokofiev seems to me something near ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prokofiev's Music 28 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have loved Prokofiev's music for this ballet since seeing the production in London many years ago, and I was not disappointed with Previn's conduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Version 23 April 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite ballet scores. This one provides ome good emphais on the 'popular' tracks and is clean on all others. I can imagine the dancers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Entrance to behold 2 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A masterclass of movement through music. Amazingly touching as the interpretation of the score sings out and reflects the true meaning of dance.
The end of a story for me but only the beginning of another.
