Notes & Reviews:

Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet has inspired important works from a variety of composers. Berlioz made a dramatic symphony out of it, Gounod an opera, Tchaikovsky an enormously successful fantasy-overture, and Bernstein the gloriously updated West Side Story version. When Prokofiev turned to the play in 1934, it was with a view to create a new ballet for the Leningrad Kirov Theatre. Yuri Simonov made his debut with the Western operatic company conducting Eugene Onegin at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and made his British concert debut conducting three concerts with the London Symphony Orchestra. Since then he has given numerous concerts with the LSO, and conducted a Tchaikovsky cycle with them at the Barbican Hall.
