Description

Rachmaninoff Rhapsody is based on the slow variation, in which Rachmaninoff features an inversion of Paganini’s theme.  It is by far the best known of all Rachmaninoff’s variations, and is often included on classical music programs without the rest of the work.  Each harp part takes a turn to play the famous melody, with increasing harmonic strength and at different dynamic levels, leading to the climax, after which a ritardando and a diminuendo lead to the end of the trio.  Performance time for Rachmaninoff Rhapsody is about two and a half minutes.

The arrangement comes with separate copies for First Harp, Second Harp, and Third Harp and an Ensemble Copy showing the three parts together.
