Exclamation Your version of Vocalise has mistakes

I have played Vocalise on cello before and when downloaded your copy I noticed there were a few major mistakes in your transcription:
  • Your transcription is in the wrong clef, if it was in the tenor clef like it is meant to be then the notes would be right and all the fingerings would make sense.
  • Vocalise is in e minor and there is no key signature on your transcription, i haven't checked whether the appropriate accidentals are all the way through but it really should have the proper key signature.
  • Also the last 5 bars (excluding the remains of a tied note on the first half of the first beat) are in all the other versions I have seen in the treble clef so that the cellist doesn't have to read so many ledger lines in the tenor clef. However, this is not completely necessary but I think it would be better this way.


Sincerely

Karly Melas

Hello Karly and thank you for your message.

Well, I will try to answer your inquiries:

Our transcription is written in the correct clef (bass clef) for the key it is written.

Our transcription is written in A minor despite the original version (for voice and piano) is in E minor as you mentioned. There are actually several versions of it for cello. We decided to go with A minor considered better tailored for the cello (no tenor and treble clefs are necessary).

Thank you for your suggestion, actually we could have written the 5th bar from the end in tenor clef, but often cellists prefer to have just one bar with ledger lines instead to have to change clef. That depends by personal taste and use.

Please, let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you again.

Sincerely,
