Tchaikovsky’s musical representation of Romeo and Juliet is as expansive in its expressiveness as the Shakespearean tragedy for which it is named, concerning “[a] pair of star-cross’d lovers” and their feuding families. We hear in subdued harmonies and rhythms the devoutness of Friar Laurence - we hear the conflicting houses of the Montagues and Capulets in the dissonances and struggles between the sections of the orchestra - and we hear the rich and lush love theme that somehow retains an element of tension which suggests that true love, at least for these lovers, may be unattainable. This arrangement includes these three main ideas that are presented in Tchaikovsky’s original score. Students should explore how to technically and musically express the range of affects and emotions in the piece.
