New arrangement of The Swan of Tuonela

A new arrangement for cor anglais and organ by Matthias Arter of The Swan of Tuonela has been published by Breitkopf & Härtel.

The Swan of Tuonela is the most famous of the four symphonic poems that Jean Sibelius assembled under the title Lemminkäinen, Op. 22. It is one of the most beautiful and expressive solo pieces ever composed for cor anglais. This edition aims to bring the piece into churches, where it will sound splendidly thanks to its calm style and the wide-ranging melody. No changes have been made in the cor anglais part. The organ part has been notated in such a way that it can be played on almost any organ, although a romantic organ with appropriate tonal and dynamic possibilities is recommended.
