This volume prints both of Walton's orchestrations: his initial scoring (1929) and his reduced orchestrations of 1962. It also for the first time restores the solo part as edited by Frederick Riddle, an early soloist and champion of the work, who devised numerous idiomatic phrasings and bowings with the approval of the composer. The volume is completed by critical notes, facsimiles, and an introduction. Full performing material for both orchestrations is available from the Hire Library from the publisher.

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.

    Note-perfect and beautifully bound. The introduction is informative and interesting and the two scores are well laid-out and very readable.
