This is a terrific piece for voice or any instrument. Timing can be tricky if you are not familiar with the piece. I played the cello orchestra part a few years back when our employees' orchestra featured a local singer. Would like to get the cello solo music, also.

Beautiful Beyond Words
A truly breath taking and beautiful piece of music, Rachmaninoff certainly knew what he was doing when he composed this piece. Lyrical is an understatement when describing Vocalise. Mr. Rachmaninoff shows us that music can be gorgeous to hear and be simple to play. I’ve only been playing for 1 ½ years and found it to be a welcome breather from my workings on Bach. The Shifts are mostly small and not that difficult to implement, especially sense a portamento seems to be tailor made to fit this piece. The notes progress with a deliberate softness that make Vocalise a delight to play.It has become a favorite of my friends and family. A must have for anyone looking for a short and sweet piece to play.

This is a really pretty peice...it might be a little challenging at first if you are a beginner when it comes to shifting because there's a lot. You don't actually have to shift though until the end. Other then that not many hard elements; maybe a trill or two but that's about it. Overall pretty good!
