Elgar - Cello Concerto (score)
Arranged for cello and chamber orchestra
Elgar's Cello Concerto is established as one of the great masterpieces in late Romantic music, and receives frequent performances. The original scoring is for a full symphony orchestra, although used with lightness and restraint. This arrangement by Iain Farrington for chamber orchestra allows smaller ensembles to perform the work with the full emotional impact without any loss of texture or colour.
Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Timpani, Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass (medium-sized string section)
