Romeo At The Grave Of Juliet. Conductor – Paavo Järvi. Orchestra – Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
Järvi control of the ensemble is complete, his tempos, his balances, and his phrasing are ideal and - best of all - his conducting lets the music dance and his interpretation lets it sing. And surely it's not the sound. Telarc's digital recording is as close to real as any recording ever made. The only thing that could improve this recording would be more of it. But as it stands, this is the finest recording of the Suites From Romeo et Juliette ever made.

Paavo Jarvi & Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. And yet those previous settings did not deter Prokofiev, who first penned a Romeo and Juliet ballet for the Kirov Ballet in the summer of 1935 (the Russian composer had already had long experience with writing music for the ballet, beginning with his first work with Serge Diaghilev in 1915 for the Ballets Russes).

Prokofiev completed his ballet in 1935, but it hardly met with instant success. The Bolshoi rejected it as too difficult to dance to, and Prokofiev presented the first two suites from the work in public before premiering the ballet itself, which didn't get an official performance until 1940. In 1946 the composer gleaned a third suite of music from the complete work, and Telarc give us all three suites on the present disc. They appear to get some of their best sound out of the Cincinnati players, whether it's the Symphony Orchestra or its counterpart Pops ensemble, and this disc is no exception. I admit there is a degree more hall haze and bass resonance than in many of Erich Kunzel's pop-classical recordings for Telarc and consequently a little less definition, but Telarc nonetheless afford Jarvi some decent acoustics.
