Notes & Reviews:

Many composers have tried to capture in music alone the wonderment of Shakespeare, and four approaches are represented in this Naxos collection including Mendelssohn's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Tchaikovsky's "Hamlet Fantasy Overture" and "The Tempest," and Prokofiev's ballet "Romeo and Juliet." The Bard would be pleased as will all who enjoy this collection.
