The idea of arranging movements from Prokofiev’s popular ballet Romeo and Juliet for brass band and percussion is not as strange as it may first seem, since Russia boasts a great brass band tradition. The three arrangers who participated in this unique project have had a close relationship with the Eikanger-Bjørsvik Band for many years, resulting in colourful and thrilling arrangements that showcase the full range of sonorities available, particularly involving melodic percussion instruments and the expressive contrasts achievable between muted and full-voiced brass.
