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.Notes & Reviews:
