Roméo et Juliette (2 CD)

Robin Ticciati`s deserved reputation as one of the great Berliozian`s of our age is evident on this, his second recording with the award winning Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra. 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.

Robin Ticciati`s recordings have received many accolades: `Best Classical Album` listings in The Sunday Times (2012  2014) and The Telegraph (2015), Critics` Choice `Sound of 2012` in The Independent, `CD of the Week` in the Sunday Times and on BBC Radio 3 `CD Review` and `Recording of the Month` in Gramophone. Ticciati is Music Director of Glyndebourne Festival Opera and was named by Gramophone as one of the top ten young `conductors on the verge of greatness` and one of `Tomorrow`s Icons`. Ticciati is also a regular guest conductor of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, widely considered to be one of Europe`s leading orchestras. The SRSO has won many Swedish and international awards including a GRAMMY and has made several GRAMMY-nominated recordings.
