The definitive recording of one of Berlioz’s most popular works from the composer’s greatest living interpreter. All the drama and the passion of Shakespeare’s epic tale are conveyed in an astounding performance that has been greeted with universal acclaim.


 

"Not to be missed."

Mail On Sunday

"Sir Colin Davis’s third recorded Roméo et Juliette with fine young soloists and his superb LSO forces. The refinement of the sound brings pianissimos of breathtaking delicacy, focused in fine detail."

 

Gramophone

"Davis’s latest Berlioz sets new standards. You could sense the tension in the hall, and the recording ... Captures it to perfection. A fabulous bargain."

The Independent

"Davis is like a man possessed in this music, living every note and making it live like no other conductor can."

The Guardian

"Davis’s mastery is evident in matters great and small."

International Record Review

"The orchestra’s home-grown CD label of its own concerts is sweeping the board in whatever repertoire it seems to choose."

 

Daily Telegraph

"The new version is governed by a purity of vision and moulded with a ripeness which even Davis cannot achieve every time ... The passion
and warmth, are extraordinary."
