Notes & Reviews:

The "Lovers of Verona" have long inspired distinguished composers like Benda, Zingarelli, Bellini, Gounod and most famously, Berlioz, Tcha´kovsky and Prokofiev. Here combat, tumult and love scenes blend in fortuitous harmony that will delight the ears. Kyrill Kondrashin leads the Moscow Philharmonic, Pierre Monteu the London Symphony and Yevgeny Mravinsky the Leningrad Philharmonic in these classic readings.
