While most of Sergey Prokofiev's music has gone in and out of fashion in western countries, a few works have always remained popular: the "Classical" Symphony, Peter and the Wolf, the Third Piano Concerto, the Lieutenant Kije Suite, and perhaps most beloved of all, the ballet Romeo and Juliet. Conductor Marin Alsop completed her cycle of Prokofiev's seven symphonies in 2017, showing a commitment to the composer that few of her contemporaries can match, and she follows that achievement with this 2018 Naxos release, a nearly flawless performance of the complete Romeo and Juliet with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. This recording is typical of Alsop's clear-headed approach, revealing her thorough mastery of details, balanced phrasing, close attention to the orchestral sound, and fidelity to the score, which provides many challenges in its episodic structure. This first-rate performance may remind listeners of the classic complete recordings by André Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra, and Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and even though those recordings are still readily available, Alsop's shows that Romeo and Juliet can still inspire a fine interpretation in the digital era, making this recording essential listening for Prokofiev fans.

Album Description

While most of Sergey Prokofiev's music has gone in and out of fashion in western countries, a few works have always remained popular: the "Classical" Symphony, Peter and the Wolf, the Third Piano Concerto, the Lieutenant Kije Suite, and perhaps most beloved of all, the ballet Romeo and Juliet. Conductor Marin Alsop completed her cycle of Prokofiev's seven symphonies in 2017, showing a commitment to the composer that few of her contemporaries can match, and she follows that achievement with this 2018 Naxos release, a nearly flawless performance of the complete Romeo and Juliet with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. This recording is typical of Alsop's clear-headed approach, revealing her thorough mastery of details, balanced phrasing, close attention to the orchestral sound, and fidelity to the score, which provides many challenges in its episodic structure. This first-rate performance may remind listeners of the classic complete recordings by André Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra, and Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and even though those recordings are still readily available, Alsop's shows that Romeo and Juliet can still inspire a fine interpretation in the digital era, making this recording essential listening for Prokofiev fans.

Picasso, when painting meets music

The modernist genius of Picasso quickly went beyond the pictorial frame to irradiate music and dance, two arts with which the Spanish painter has always had a close relationship, even influencing his composer friends met along the way.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.
