Orchestration

2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, trombone, timpani, strings

Notes

These pieces are written in the contemporary stile brillante tradition, in which the point is not to develop a musical idea through dramatic transformation, but to showcase the performer’s skills, stunning the audience with virtuosic displays through the presentation of loosely-connected musical ideas. On these terms, the work is considerably more successful.

Notes

In a move which may (and did) raise eyebrows, Prokofiev decided that Juliet should instead return to life in Romeo’s arms so that the happy couple could dance together into a bright and happy future.
