New Editions

With the completion of a major unfinished score, a composer’s cut of the 1948 film of Scott of the Antarctic, and new editions, collections and orchestrations of well-loved pieces, RVW’s publishers continue to bring his work to new performers and audiences.

The publication of RVW’s output is shared between six publishers, all contributing to the promotion of this special anniversary year. Oxford University Press, significant supporters of the launch event in Manchester have said, “In his 150th anniversary year, Oxford University Press is proud to continue its long and honourable association with the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams and add to our catalogue the Concerto for Tenor Tuba (an arrangement of the Concerto for Tuba), Scott of the Antarctic – The Composer’s Cut (for live performance with the 1948 film), and a new critical edition of Folk Songs of the Four Seasons.”

Stainer & Bell add, “Stainer & Bell celebrates RVW150 with publication of The Future for Chorus and Orchestra, a major unfinished score now competed by Martin Yates, a new edition of A Sea Symphony, and an Anniversary Choral Collection, an exciting and comprehensive programme of materials enabling choirs to present their own tribute to the composer.” In addition, Faber are publishing a new orchestration by David Matthews of the Romance and Pastoral while Boosey & Hawkes are publishing a new edition of the Horn Sonata.
