Romantic music from the 20th Century to excite the soul,
This review is from: Prokofiev - Romeo and Juliet (Audio CD)
This is without a doubt, along with "Rite of Spring" and "Firebird", some of the most exciting music for ballet from the 2th Century. Prokofiev, who is known for block-like sonorities is at his most melodic and rhythmic in this stunning ballet. And Andre Previn conducts it to perfection.
If you aren't a fan of Prokofiev, this is a good work to start with, along with the magnificent Symphony #5. I never get tired of listening to this ballet--it's one of the most vivid works ever composed for the dance.
