Vocalise, Op. 34, No. 14 is a song by Sergei Rachmaninoff, published in 1912 as the last of his Fourteen Songs, Op. 34. Written for voice with piano accompaniment, it contains no words, but is sung using any one vowel. It was dedicated to soprano Antonina Nezhdanova. In this adaptation for six celli the solo part is retained in the first cello, while the piano part is distributed among the other five celli. The rich characteristic harmonic textures of Rachmaninoff’s music is very suitable for a cello ensemble. It is strongly recommended that the first cello part is played by 2 or 3 cellists.

Ovation Press also offers Rachmaninoff's Vocalise for Cello Octet Arranged by Roland Pidoux.
