A concert edition that captures the beauty, drama and power of Rachmaninoff’s original setting for soprano and piano, as well as his later orchestral version. This arrangement also incorporates features of the writing from Robert Schultz’s best-selling transcription for solo piano. The edition includes the full performance score with separate solo part, arranged in C# minor, Rachmaninoff’s original key for the work.
The standard solo part is scored for C instruments or voice covering the range from c#’ – c#”’, suitable for high voice, violin, flute, oboe or other soprano instruments pitched in C. The solo part is also available for transposing instruments, or C instruments with a lower range such as viola, cello, bassoon, etc. When ordering the edition, include a brief instruction in the “order note” on the check out page to specify the instrument and key (if a transposing instrument) and we will provide the solo part in the correct clef, key and range to be compatible with the C# minor piano score. If there are no instructions with the order we will include the standard solo part.
