Rachmaninov's Vocalise is the last in his set of Fourteen Songs Op.34 published in 1912. It is wordless and was written for soprano and piano but there have been numerous arrangements made by the composer and others. Rachmaninov's own arrangements were for orchestra alone and, the one in this Goodmusic edition, for voice and orchestra.
The soloist's part has a two octave range and the original version is in a high key, which results in a top C# so a medium key version, a third lower, is also printed here - a top A being a little more achievable for many!
Instead of a vocal soloist, many different instruments can be used as listed above and parts are included for all of these options. A piano accompaniment is also available separately for the soloist to be able to practice without the orchestra (see GM101)
A PACK comprises one full score, string parts 4/4/3/4/2 and all wind, brass and percussion parts plus all solo parts
Duration 4 minutes
