This recording won Best Orchestral Performance and Disc of the Year at the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2011. Romeo & Juliet: Act I, Scene XIII, Dance of the Knights. Valery Gergiev, London Symphony Orchestra.
This 2008 live recording with the London Symphony Orchestra is Valery Gergiev's second complete recording of Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet, the first being a 1991 Philips release with the Kirov Orchestra. This performance, like his first, is notable for its refinement and lyricism. It's perhaps surprising that Gergiev, known for the wildness and ferocity of his performances of other Prokofiev works, like The Fiery Angel, shows such restraint here.
Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet has a strong claim to being the greatest ballet. No 29: Juliet at Friar Laurence’s 06. No 30: The people continue to make merry 07. No 31: Further public festivities 08.

Album · 2010 · 52 Songs. Gergiev brought out of the London Symphony Orchestra a range of new colors when they played Prokofiev’s music, and this recording of the complete Romeo & Juliet ballet is a superb reminder of the Gergiev-LSO partnership. Full of glorious melodies; rich, vivid colors; and a really astounding rhythmic life, this is one of Prokofiev’s finest theatrical scores. And Gergiev is a true man of the theater, often conducting for dancers-experience that gives his performance of the ballet real authority. Prokofiev: Romeo & Juliet, Op. 64 London Symphony Orchestra.
