Trio from Der Rosenkavalier transcribed by Konstantin Soukhovetski
Piano transcription full score . Known as a 'most sublime 7 minutes in music' the iconic trio from the Finale of R. Strauss' blockbuster opera Der Rosenkavalier has finally arrived in piano solo version. For piano an opera lovers alike this score offers an opportunity to enjoy this amazing music. Advanced-Professional level. The themes are traced with lines and tenuto markings so you can outline the multi-layered polyphony of the voice leading.
TIP: when playing a chord with thrill inside - let the bottom note go. connect the melody over the trill for the vocal line to have quasi orchestral support and overtones.
Pedal is marked only when necessary to create a proper verticality - otherwise rely on your personal taste and technique. When I use staccato marking I always mean for it to be over the pedal - to create orchestral sound.
Connect melody with fingers super-legato as much as it is possible. When superimposed over the rest of the texture it creates vocal line. Enjoy!
