Christmas holidays are obvious over and this means that the orchestra compositions for the next season are revealed. And it's so awesome: Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev.
Some reasons why:
1) RUSSIAN COMPOSER, DURHUR.
2) Romeo and Juliet! I looove this play and I love how Prokofiev puts all the drama in his music. I know, I know, it's overrated but I don't love it because it's a lovestory (though I love the Knights of Summer theme this play has) but because of the drama. Mercutio, Tybalt, the sense of loss, etc.
3) I actually learned something: It's a violine solo (plural is violini soli?) because violin is masculine in Italian. But it's a viola sola (plural is viole sole?) because viola is feminine. I personally think this is awesome. And not just because we violas are finally getting a damn solo.

I mean, who DOESN'T know the Dance of the Knights (Montagues and Capulets)? (famous part starts at 1:35) It isn't the signature tune for the Soviet Era for nothing. And the other acts in the suites are really beautiful too, but you can only find the Dance of the Knights on YouTube :/

But! I'm also sad we're not doing number 7: The Death of Tybalt (awesome dramatic PWNAGE starts around 2:34) No seriously, this is music worthy of Tybalt. Nobody does cello and copper like the Russians.

Also, I really like the fact that the Netherlands is in a iceskating mania right now. Really, it's awesome to have a lot of actual natural ice (Last time was 1997! Dude!). But the cold isn't helping my cold. Still, ice skating :D
