Ticciati has previously recorded Symphonie Fantastique, Les nuits d'été & La mort de Cléopâtre and L'enfance du Christ; the latter was named Gramophone's 'Top Choice' recording of this repertoire.Ticciati and the SRSO are joined by the Swedish Radio Choir, a phenomenal ensemble and one of the best large-scale choruses in Europe, alongside featured soloists Katija Dragojevic mezzo-soprano, Andrew Staples tenor and Alastair Miles bass.Roméo et Juliette was considered a pinnacle of French Romanticism and a brilliant example of Berlioz's orchestral mastery. The work is one of the most original conceptions of the nineteenth 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.
“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 réconciliation, but a boxy acoustic underbalances the chorus.” The Guardian
