Program

The music of the ballet Romeo and Juliet was released as concert music and not as music for choreography: the dancers refused to perform it and, although he had signed a contract with the Bolshoi, it took ten years to schedule it as a ballet. Prokofiev’s music masterfully places us in the middle of the fights between the Montagues and Capulets, and makes us understand the forbidden love between the two most famous lovers in history. Direct and energetic music. The popularity of Samuel Barber’s Adagio is such that in recent years we have been able to hear it in many very different contexts: ceremonies, films, advertisements, etc. There is no doubt, however, that it sounds best live on stage.
