Alexander Glasunow: Élégie Op. 44

Books | Viola, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Alexander Glazunov
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

A precious gem of romantic Viola literature is now available in Henle quality. Thanks to the publisher’s good connections to Russian archives, we were able to assess Glazunov’s autograph for the first time for this first Urtext edition, and uncover the discrepancies between the autograph and the first print.

Written in 1893 for the Danish violist Franz Hildebrand, the Élégie is one of the few original works of the 19th century for Viola and thus a welcome enrichment of the repertoire. Since the piece does not make any particularly high technical demands on the soloist, the Élégie is ideally suited for teaching as well – and Tabea Zimmermann’s fingerings guarantee the best possible support.
