The beautifully staged, magnificent concert is carried by a top roster of artists: soprano Sonya Yoncheva and the Italian bass baritone Luca Pisaroni, as well as the Staatskapelle Dresden and the choir of the Sächsischer Staatsoper under the baton of Donald Runnicles.
Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony bring unsurpassed storytelling and musicality to their latest recording on the Grammy Award-winning SFS Media label: Berlioz’s dramatic symphony Roméo et Juliette. With a narrative that Berlioz deemed “too beautiful, too musical” to not be performed, this impassioned orchestral scoring of love and despair is further enriched by the vocals of Sasha Cooke, Nicholas Phan, Luca Pisaroni, and the SFS Chorus.
