About

The Lovers of Verona, the Sienna legend transfigured by Shakespeare, has inspired distinguished composers like
Benda, Zingarelli, Bellini, Gounod, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev. A final three have been overshadowed: Vaccal, Marchetti and Zandonai, long associated with or in thrall to Maria Malibran!

Here combat, tumult and love scenes blend in fortuitous harmony a graceful dance taking precedence over the dazzling orchestral frenzy. A selection to delight the ears of all lovers of doomed romance.

Tchaikovsky: live recording, Moscow, 7 January 1967
Berlioz: studio recording near London, Westminster Lab, June 1962
Prokofiev: live recording, Leningrad, 30 December 1981
