H. Berlioz (Transcr. N. Szederkenyi): Valse from Symphonie Fantastique

As part of the album “Shall We Dance…?” the Valse from the Symphonique Fantastique by Berlioz is a wonderful gem for any recital program. Helping to enlarge the repertoire of the violin & harp literature, this is a nice change for players and audience equally, merging the whole orchestra into a duet of violin and harp.

This work, originally written for orchestra, is a transcription for violin and harp.

Since its’ almost classical style, this beautiful valse is one of the “easy” transcriptions, just keeping keys, rhythms and of course the whole structure. It is a technically medium demanding piece.

Written by Hungarian violin virtuoso Nandor Szederkenyi, former concertmaster in several major orchestras from Japan to Austria, who also had a long career as soloist.

This is a straight transcription in original key, very “violinistic” part, alternating melodic line in both harp and violin. The harp part uses the orginal harp part of the orchestral version by Berlioz.

Published using the leading notation software Finale, he includes bowings and fingerings, in collaboration with his duo partner/daughter who took care of the pedal markings of the harp part.

A professional recording of this transcription is available at iTunes and other major audio distribution platforms, or just listen to the “Shall we dance…?” trailer video on YouTube.
