Trolls listening to classical music?
Um…There is no symphony on this album. What is on this offering is a pair of fantastic works by two gifted composers. This coupling is joined by a short composition from one of our finest conductors. But, no symphonies. Sorry. I think that if you don’t like classical music, than don’t waste everyone else’s time – and Apple’s bandwidth – to express your disgust. I don’t go around giving one star, negative reviews to all the hip hop/rap albums on iTunes just because I don’t like that kind of un-music. Take your troll and go home, buddy.
LA Philharmonic is spot on in this recording - wonderful!
You could not find more accessible and exciting 20th century music than Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet and Ravel's fabulous D major Piano Concerto. When introduced by the latest new piece by Esa-Pekka Salonen, you have an album of modern classical music at its best, from the 20th and the 21st century. For those who missed it at Disney Hall, you get a chance to hear it for the first time. For those who were there, you get to hear it again and to own it. Well done, iTunes!
