Enescu Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 – Viola Part

Edited by Yizhak Schotten

Title: Romanian Rhapsody No. 1
Composer: Georges Enescu
Instrument: Viola
Edited By: Yizhak Schotten
Instrumentation: Orchestral
Pages: 8

The viola part for Enescu's Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A major, Op. 11 has been edited by Israeli-born Yizhak Schotten, an internationally acclaimed musician whom STRAD Magazine has called "one of America's finest viola players... a leading light of the U.S. viola establishment." Schotten's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.

The two Romanian Rhapsodies for orchestra are George Enescu's best-known compositions. Dedicated to the composer and pedagogue Bernard Crocé-Spinelli, Enescu's Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 is ebullient and outgoing. It begins with a folk tune quotation. As the work progresses, this tune grows faster and livelier to climax in a vibrant whirling folk dance. The Rhapsodies were first performed together in 1903. Since then both rhapsodies, and particularly the first, have held a permanent place in the repertory of every major orchestra.
