The Lovers of Verona, the Sienna legend transfigured by Shakespeare, has inspired distinguished composers like Benda, Zingarelli, Bellini, Gounod, Berlioz, Tchaïkovsky and Prokofiev. The last three have overshadowed Vaccal, Marchetti and Zandonai, long in thrall to Maria Malibran! Here combat, tumult and love scenes blend in fortuitous harmony – a graceful dance taking precedence over the dazzling orchestral frenzy. A selection to delight the ears of all lovers of Beauty.
