Music from the two settings of Romeo and Juliet. The musical West Side Story and the ballet Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev. These two new arrangements, written especially for Matt, show not only his ability to play in a variety of musical styles but the great range, beautiful sound, and virtuosic capability of the euphonium as a solo voice.
The Prokofiev suite offers a very different musical presentation of Shakespeare, and is more intimately scored for euphonium and piano only.
