Please Pass It On! AdminGlobal FiorentihoMod. She was with me even in my grave When the last of my friends turned away, And she sang like the first storm heaven gave. Or as if flowers were having their say.
Rachmaninov’s ‘Vocalise’ is one of my favorite pieces. Was just playing it this morning! A few that I know are learning it.
The arrangement I play Borodin is a little different than fioremtino presented above. Not sure I like those arpeggios. Anna Moffa is who turned me onto the vocal.
Tasteful interpretation by amateur David Hibbard although still a little rushed for me: I’ve played Earl Wild’s arrangement and enjoyed it a lot. I think his version is much better than Kocsis’s; I found fiorenitno treble arpeggios in the latter arrangement to be distracting and out of character with the beautiful melodic structure of the piece.
I didn’t recognize the arrangement, which seemed so pure and simple that I may even like it better than Wild’s. Does anyone know whose version Hibbard was playing?

Sergio Fiorentino’s transcription is the simplest, most straight-forward version. You can hear Arkady Chubrik’s transcription and download a pdf of it on his web site: You give because you love and cannot help giving. Originally posted by Emanuel Ravelli: Mel, that one sounds similar vocaliise for the third section.
Upon looking at the written page, I see that it is in a different key as well. And that last fkorentino looks a little more simplified. I would still like to hear more intensity in the interpretation, such as the way Anna Moffa sings it. Hope others get inspired to play it. Yes, the vocal version by Anna Moffa is incredibly beautiful – she doesn’t oversing the melody, and it just fiorentnio to float over the strings.
I actually liked the arpeggios in the version I posted the link to. I think they add a emotional richness to an already lovely piece.
But thanks alerting me to the Borodin version you play. The beginning has a flowing wordless vocal similar to Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise. Here is a decent version although here I would greatly prefer a lighter voice: The recording by the late Kenneth Schermerhorn conducting the Nashville Symphony is so beautiful. Originally posted by dannylux: The main differences that I note between the Schultz and the Chubrik transcription fiiorentino that Schultz often gives RH octaves to the melody notes, Chubrik’s texture is slightly denser; Schultz’ version is in C minor and Chubriks is in E minor.
I’ll try the Chubrik. Thanks for the link.
You might enjoy exploring those vcoalise you have not yet. Too bad the recording goes off key towards the end. I was not familiar with the no. The orchestral was particularly beautiful.
Thank you for sharing. I shall look for a CD of that. If you don’t know, there is actually a video of him performing his version: I have that flagged to listen to many more times. I had not heard of him before.
Nice touch, nice interpretation. I like sharing our favorites.
I enjoyed the video of the Bachianas Brasileiras No. If you’re looking for a good orchestral recording of No. Here is another interesting performance I found this morning.
This is one beautiful piece. I’ve started working on it myself. It’s actually quite difficult to keep quiet and slow. In some ways it reminds me a lot of Scriabin’s Etude in C-sharp minor.
David Hibbard plays it okay, too fast and too loud in some plays. I felt overpowered and rushed when I listend to it.
LL thank you for the link. Current works in progress: I just finished reading Mozart in the Jungle: The book was an interesting read. Although I found the parts on the history of classical music funding a little dry, the parts of the book she wrote on her life were fascinating. And everything she wrote about pianist Samuel Sanders was absolutely compelling and heartbreaking.
Anyway, I thought of you and this thread when I came upon the following passage: When we finished, an elegant woman angled her French twist over my music stand. I smiled politely and looked up, expecting the Danny Kaye joke [“the oboe’s an ill wind that no one blows good.
This woman’s eyes were startling. Whomever she was, she connected deeply with the music. That was the most beautiful sound and phrasing,” she said quietly, decisively.
I started telling her how I loved her Bachianas Brasileiras no.

Before I could go on, she was gone, lost in a blur of designer dresses. Like Tully, Anna Moffo was a link to the distant past. Oh, a very belated thanks for posting the link to that theremin version of Vocalise. If you like the sound of the theremin, I think you would appreciate the sound of the Vietnamese ciorentino called the dan bau wouldn’t it be fun to hear Vocalise performed on that instrument!
Vietnam also has the beautiful dan tranh. The sound of both these instruments truly touch my heart when they are performed by a skilled player. I much prefer Fiorentino’s arrangement to the one by Kocsis lacks simplicity. Who is the performer on that gorgeous Steinway in the original post? I think she is a lovely young lady.
That piano is definitely gorgeous. Despite the limited sound, I thought the whole video had rather high “production values. According to the messages posted on the Youtube page, her name is Daria Rabotkina, she’s Russian, she has a web site www.
It also provides one other important detail — she’s married. By the way, I loved the Anna Moffo story. It’s amazing how often these chance encounters with musical greatness will occur if you just play in or go to enough concerts. I never bothered to read the comments posted in response to her YouTube performance, but somehow I missed the link to her website, which was clearly posted in plain sight at her YouTube profile.
I enjoyed exploring her website. Wow, she toured with the Kirov Orchestra with Valery Gergiev. I guess she’s a pro.
I checked out her repertoire, and it is impressive. Unfortunately, there is only one Scriabin work listed and absolutely no Shostakovich whatsover. But I guess fiogentino one’s perfect. I also read her Journal, vocaljse the way she expresses herself in words seems so out of fashion with the way people communicate today It seems to belong to another century. I also checked out the audio clips and greatly enjoyed listening to her performance of Rachmaninoff’s Sonata I hope she posts more videos of her piano performances on YouTube, and Vocalie hope to be able to attend a recital of hers the next time she comes to California.
Yeah, I found that book that the Anna Moffo story comes from definitely worth reading. My piano teacher tells me I put classical musicians too much on a pedestal; the book served to remind me that, at least for one orchestral musician, fiorehtino music business is not all it’s cracked up to be. There is now a gorgeous audio-only YouTube video of her doing the Aria Cantilena from Bachianas Brasileiras 5 which is just as incredibly lovely and moving as her rendition of Vocalise.
I found a terrific live performance of Kissin performing an arrangement of Vocalise. Here is the link to the audio-only YouTube performance:
