Prokofiev: Suite from Romeo and Juliet

Recorded in 2013, Maestro Riccardo Muti's performances of selections from Sergei Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet drew critical acclaim. On this recording, Muti conducts selections from both of Prokofiev's suites derived from his ballet — beginning with Montagues and Capulets — as he and the CSO take the listener on a journey through Shakespeare's story.
