One of Prokofiev’s best loved works today, Romeo and Juliet was initially declared ‘impossible to dance to’. The composer resorted to making Symphonic Suites of the work, subsequently arranged for viola and piano, with the composer’s full approval, by renowned Soviet performer and founder of the Beethoven String Quartet Vadim Vasilyevich Borisovsky. The adaptation loses little from Prokofiev’s timeless score through expert utilization of the viola’s full technical possibilities, a quality enhanced by the ‘sensuous and dramatic’ (The Strad) artistry of outstanding viola player Matthew Jones.

“Goodness, this is playing of rare distinction, the soloists responding to each other in a most engaging and spontaneous way. Mercutio struts to music of tremendous virility - well caught here - yet it’s all so economically done, ...Rarely have I been so spellbound by two instrumentalists working in such close and productive harmony...Subtle arrangements, masterful musicianship and a top-flight recording; a must for all Prokofiev fans.”
