5 stars 'Robin Ticciati has proved to be a special Berlioz interpreter, and offers an individual, youthful reading driven by crisp detail and translucent textures and Berlioz's vital rhythmic spring.'
BBC Music Magazine

Album of the Week: '...virtuosic and intense string-playing...'
The Sunday Times

'...orchestrally superb...Katija Dragojevic is a gorgeously warm mezzo.'
The Observer

 

Robin Ticciati has previously recorded Symphonie Fantastique, Les nuits d'été, La mort de Cléopâtre and L'enfance du Christ; the latter was named Gramophone's 'Top Choice' recording of this repertoire.

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.

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 color.

'Robin Ticciati has proven himself heir to Colin Davis with his Berlioz series on Linn and this last instalment is, if anything, even finer.'

'Ticciati, who has shown himself an excellent interpreter of Berlioz, once again proves adept at managing his forces and exploring the intricacies and the emotional impact of the music.'

Crescendo

« De fait, il parvient, grâce à une baguette souple et expressive, à construire des climats si justes que l'oreille vit la tragédie de l'intérieur. Pour chaque épisode, le soin porté aux et dans les pupitres de l'orchestre ainsi que le choix des dynamiques et des couleurs permettent à Ticciati de développer un travail sonore et d'architecture conséquent. Le chœur présente lui aussi de belles caractéristiques : texte intelligible, intonation qui ne fait jamais défaut, homogénéité, couleurs... »

'Robin Ticciati has a genuine feel for the music of Berlioz and there's freshness and vitality in his conducting. This is a distinguished addition to Robin Ticciati's Berlioz series. More please.'

'On entend rarement la Grande fête chez Capulet jouée de manière aussi chorégraphique, avec la légèreté et le sens du mouvement propres au ballet.'

MusicWeb International
Recording of the Month: 'This is a marvellous set, the finest Roméo et Juliette to appear for several years, and worthy, in very different ways, to stand alongside illustrious competition from the likes of Sir Colin Davis and Sir John Eliot Gardiner.'

Audiophile Audition
4 Stars
'The musical conception and the performance certainly deserve your consideration: there's youthful brio in the introductory Combats - Tumulte, outstanding for me is Swedish mezzo Katija Dragojevic, whose very first utterances shape the bittersweet narrative that she unfolds and bass Alastair Miles bringing all of the command, mingled with deep regret, that should inform the role of Friar Laurence.'

BBC Radio 3 'Record Review'
'You've probably guessed by now, this is the one of these three newcomers [compared with Gergiev and Andrew Davis's recordings] that I've enjoyed the most for its freshness and vivacity; the way Berlioz's extraordinary orchestra colours spring to life and the intimacy and detail of the Linn recording.'

'This festival performance was notable for its elegance, even restraint — a feat in itself given how much Berlioz throws into the stew.'
