Description

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.

Reviews

(…) Lidia Baich and Matthias Fletzburger have skillfully and sensitively arranged these alternately lyrical and dramatic themes in a vivid and virtuosic manner for both violin and piano. No mere accompaniment, they have created an elaborate and exciting keyboard part that imaginatively explores the orchestral colors and so und images of Prokofieff's brilliant score.
String Magazine 04/2013

(…) ln this enthusiastic and imaginative arrangement by the performing duo of Baich and Fletzberger, the original scores were studied carefully, and the instruments given an equality of status as a result.

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.
