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 colour.
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.
‘Artistic discretion and emotional truth go hand in hand in this beautifully observed performance, with Berlioz's luminous orchestration and dramatic scheme perceptively articulated by Robin Ticciati and with a chorus and soloists who unerringly get to the music's heart.’ - Gramophone on L’Enfance du Christ
