Notes & Reviews:

Robin Ticciat's deserved reputation as one fo the great Berliozian's of our age is evident on this recording, his second, with the award-winning Swedish Radio Symphony. Romeo et Juliette was considered a pinnacle of French Romanticism and a brilliant example of Berlioz's orchestral mastery. The piece is one of the most original conceptions of the 19th century - deftly poised between symphony and stage drama. Robin Ticciati fully communicates the range of Berlioz's imagination; he brings an innate understanding of the romanticism of the music and succeeds in delivering a performance that is brimming with color.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2016
If freshness and vitality appeal more than sheer richness, try listening to this.

The Guardian, 11th September 2016
Orchestrally superb...The sound pictures are precise and subtle...Katija Dragojevic is a gorgeously warm mezzo, and Alastair Miles a stentorian bass in the final Serment de rTconciliation, but a boxy acoustic underbalances the chorus.
