Hahn R. – Sopra l’acqua indormenzada
One of the most popular songs by Reynaldo Hahn, here in an arrangement for string orchestra.
"Sopra l'acqua indormenzada" was originally written as a song for voice and piano in 1901, and published in 1919 as part of the cycle "Venezia, chansons en dialecte vénitien". As the title suggests, the cycle is centered around Venice and the songs are based on text in venetian dialect.
Joyce Di Donato gave a faboulous performance of this piece, which you can find on YouTube: https://youtu.be/IskBD994TBI
The piece is presented here in an arrangement for string orchestra. It could also be played by a string quintet.
All slurs and ties take into account bowing as well: changes of bowings should be minimum or none at all.
The parts have been formatted in order to not have any page turn.
