Because Monday is already taken. This column will feature music I listen to when I write, or maybe sometimes music I just like (and therefore think everyone else should, too).
The name might not be familiar, but trust me, you’ve heard this. As our month of Halloween music rolls on, here’s “Montagues and Capulets” by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev:
This piece was written for Prokofiev’s 1935 ballet Romeo and Juliet and is played at the ball where Romeo and Juliet first lay eyes on one another. Not related to anything specifically scary, it was meant simply to create a dark atmosphere. It’s done its job well, don’t you think?
