About the album

Shakespeare and Byron meet for a double-CD of Maazel’s recordings of two of Berlioz’s symphonies for Decca, coupled with the Roman Carnival Overture, included on an Overtures disc for Decca. Back on CD after a long absence, the 1972 Vienna Roméo boasts a stellar vocal cast.
 
‘Robert Vernon’s rich, slightly resonated tone is very apt for Harold’s melancholy detachment, and the warmth in it is of genuine viola quality’ (Harold en Italie) Gramophone
 
‘Maazel comes into his own with the “Capulets’ Ball”, setting off with a splendid thrust and maintaining the atmosphere with a tempo that is at once firm and exuberant … Maazel plays the moment of Romeo’s collapse and Juliet’s suicide with brilliant articulation’ (Roméo et Juliette) Gramophone
