Notes & Reviews:

"Living people can dance, the dying cannot", Prokofiev wrote to explain the problems he faced when writing music for the ballet Romeo and Juliet. His original score was rejected as 'undanceable' by the Bolshoy Theatre and his initial scheme for a happy ending for the lovers was, fortunately, vetoed. The revised score, however, proved a masterpiece of expressive beauty and drama, with melting love music and huge bravura, and it remains one of the most loved ballet scores of the twentieth century. Andrew Mogrelia has had a varied career of concerts, recording and work with major dance companies. He has worked with the English National, Dutch National, Finnish National, Norwegian National ballets, Netherlands Dance Theatre, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Australian Ballet, West Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theater.

Classical Candor
Mogrelia... handles the more lyrical, romantic, and tragic sequences with a delicate hand... "The Young Juliet" at the beginning and "Juliet's Death" at the end are most graceful and affecting.
