After careful study of the original scores, Lidia Baich and Matthias Fletzberger have managed to capture the colorful and diverse sound of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet with only two instruments. Both violin and piano function as equal solo instruments, rather than the piano serving as accompaniment only.
For advanced players.

Aleksey Igudesman on Romeo und Julia
The Universal Edition string catalogue is an extremely important new development.
I am certain that the exciting publications will prove an indispensable enrichment for many violinists and will bring much more fun both to practice rooms and concert halls.
They offer an opportunity to newly discover probably the most well-known love story in the arrangement of Prokofiev’s Suite from Romeo and Juliet, or delight the audience with a duet from Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
I am delighted that new publications with high-quality pieces and arrangements are continually being added to the string repertoire, and I am sure to benefit from them myself.
