Description

In 1922 Maurice Ravel heard the young Hungarian violin virtuoso and niece of Joseph Joachim, Jelly D’Aranyi, in concert in London. Following the performance, Ravel spent the remainder of the evening requesting D’Aranyi to playnumerous gypsy tunes on her violin, probing her on the technical limits of the instrument. The result of this encounter is Ravel’s virtuoso classic “Tzigane”.

Written originally for violin and piano or luthéal (a mechanisminvented in 1919 that attaches to a piano, producing a sound similar to the rich overtones of the Cimbalon), the premiere took place in London in April 1924. The composer had finished the work only days beforehand. Ravellaterorchestrated “Tzigane” and both versions remain a “must” for music-lovers and aspiring violinists today. Jelly D’Aranyi performed both versions regularly throughout her long career.

This Urtext edition presents thefirst scholarly-critical edition of Ravel’s masterpiece. It is published both in the orchestral version, complete with full score and performance material, as well as in the composer’s earlier version for violin and piano. Allknown sources, including letters, have been drawn on for the new edition; one of the available sources, consulted for the first time, was a copy of “Tzigane” from the estate of Jelly D’Aranyi, which is today part of a privatecollection.

The version for piano and violin contains, besides the Urtext part, a second violin part as a facsimile with performance instructions by Jelly D’Aranyi. D’Aranyi’s alterations and fingering reflect how Ravelmust have heard the work in rehearsals and performance and as such are a document of early 20th century performance practice. The cooperation between Ravel and D’Aranyi is comparable to that of Brahms and Joachim working on theBrahms violin concerto.
