Igor Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements
Sergei Prokofiev: Excerpts from Romeo and Juliet


Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet captures the tenderness and fury of Shakespeare's beloved drama. Written in response to World War II, Stravinsky's turbulent Symphony in Three Movements is startling in its breadth of energy and complexity.
