This volume contains newly edited versions of two of Walton's mature works for orchestra: the Partita for Orchestra, written in 1957 and one of ten works commissioned by the Cleveland Orchestra, and the Variations on a Theme by Hindemith, a work of great colour from 1962-3 and taking as its inspiration a theme from his friend Paul Hindemith.
About William Walton Edition
In March 2014 Oxford University Press published the last volume in its magnificent William Walton Edition, the only complete critical edition of a 20th-century British composer's oeuvre. All 24 volumes are handsomely printed and bound. Walton's entire output is now available to scholars and performers in a definitive and fully practical edition, based on the form in which the composer ultimately wished his music to be performed. The general editor, David Lloyd-Jones - the eminent conductor, English music specialist, and founder of Opera North - invited a world-class expert to edit each volume. Carefully researched introductory essays place the works in their historical context and in the composer's oeuvre, and there are full critical notes.
