LSO Live celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2010. The label's first release of the year features Prokofiev's spectacular score for the ballet Romeo & Juliet conducted by Valery Gergiev. Gergiev is a tireless champion of Prokofiev's music. In 2004 he conducted the complete cycle of the composer's symphonies with the LSO which then won a Gramophone Award. Shortly afterwards Gergiev became Principal Conductor of the LSO and spent much of 2008 and 2009 touring Prokofiev's symphonies with the orchestra in Europe, Japan and the USA. Gergiev's Mahler cycle continues in February 2010 with the release of the Fourth Symphony. Other upcoming releases on LSO Live include a Rachmaninov symphony cycle as well as music by Ravel, Stravinsky, Debussy and Strauss.

"Valery Gergiev ziet het ballet Romeo en Julia van Sergej Prokofjev als één reusachtige compositie. Iedere noot ervan draagt bij tot de beleving van het tijdloze liefdesverhaal. Van knippen kan dan ook geen sprake zijn, vindt de Russische maestro die tegenwoordig ook de scepter zwaait over het London Symphony Orchestra. Met dit orkest heeft hij het werk integraal op cd gezet. De gloednieuwe opname bewijst zijn gelijk. Het drama van de families Montague en Capulet komt ook zonder dansers tot leven in handen van de flamboyante dirigent die de Britten opzweept tot een uitvoering waar de vonken van afspatten."
Klassieke Zaken Magazine

"Few can rival Valery Gergiev's pedigree in Prokofiev's music, and he is palpably aware of how this score works in the theatre. His pacing of events is masterly, with plenty of verve and passion… what really impresses… is the tenderness and poetry that are so often overlooked in Prokofiev, and not just in the love music. Gergiev frequently lets the strings and solo woodwind linger in a beguiling, natural rubato, whilst maintaining an architectural grasp of the tragic whole."
BBC Music Magazine *****

"Gergiev is in his element and not just in moments of gritty angularity or romantic excess. The lighter numbers, sometimes taken more spaciously than usual, are equally memorable."
Gramophone Magazine - March 2010
