Lensky's Aria from the Opera Eugene Onegin for Flute and PianoIncludes CD
From the Publisher
The basis of this edition is L Auer's transcription of Lensy's aria from Tchaikovsky's opera 'Eugene Onegin' for violin and piano.
In the present arrangement the flute part is close to the original. In part, this conerns the rhythm and its articulation. Unlike Auer, whose influence helps unlock the expressive capabilities of the violin, the author of the flute version was guided by the vocal articulation and the pecularities of the wind instrument that bring it closer to the singer's voice.
Performance duration (approx): 5'
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
