Eugene Onegin Recuced Orchestration

Eugene Onegin

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Reduced Orchestration: 1(picc)111 1000 11111 harp timp

Flute/Piccolo, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, Harp, Timpani.

This orchestral reduction of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin was originally conceived for twelve players. However, a separate and slightly differing set of string parts is now available for performances with larger string sections. The harp part is essential, forming a more prominent role than it does in Tchaikovsky’s original orchestration.

Created in 2012, this arrangement was first performed by Opera Project at The Tobacco Factory Theatre in Bristol, UK. It was subsequently performed by the Juilliard School of Music in New York, reviewed by the New York Times. In 2014 it was performed by the Theater an der Wien at the Wiener Kammeroper in Vienna and it has since received performances in New Zealand, Hong Kong, France, Austria, Canada, the UK and throughout the USA including the Curtis Institute of Music.
