Romeo and Juliet
Forget The Apprentice: when Prokofiev reinvented Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, he wrote some of the most tender, tuneful and thrillingly physical music of the 20th century. It’s hard to top Romeo and Juliet, but Brahms’s volcanic First Piano Concerto is where youthful genius meets raw heartbreak. It’s grand, it’s dark, it’s heart-on-sleeve. And when the magnificent British pianist Paul Lewis is at the keyboard, we think it’ll knock you backwards.
