Our original instrumentation of oboe, horn and harp was for a concert program where the audience was not used to "formal, buttoned up concerts". During Geibel's lifetime, parlor music was very popular and within that genre, “waltz-songs” became a staple. The Joys of Spring Waltz is typical of this form and was published by Geibel in several versions, piano solo, chamber ensemble, women’s trio and piano/vocal. This version includes full score/harp (or piano) and horn (with substitute part for viola) and oboe (with substitute parts for flute, violin, or Bb clarinet). Cover art included.
Full score shows horn in F as solo instrument.
Suitable for lever or pedal harp (or piano) and vioin (or flute). The PDFs arrive in a folder as separate files ready for printing or installation on a iPad or Tablet. (image below for larger view). Also included are alternate parts for cello, violin, flute, clarinet in Bb or horn in F. These two excerpts are suitable for lever harp or pedal harp.
