If anyone knows where I can pick up a copy of the harp part for “Amahl and the Night Visitors”, I’d greatly appreciate it! I’m hoping to produce it this holiday with my 8 year-old son as Amahl. Thanks!
The harp part is on rental only. These publications are for sale from any music dealer:
MENOTTI, Gian Carlo (b.1911)
Amahl and the Night Visitors (complete).
Pub. G. SCHIRMER
HAL50340770 large score (cloth) 59.95
HAL50337790 vocal score (Revised 1997) 22.50
HAL50337800 choral score 4.95
HAL50340010 libretto 4.95
Orchestra materials on rental directly from G. Schimer.
[The harp part has never been for sale and any other copy than the Schirmer rental one is illegal.]
2 pianos four hands, on rental directly from G. Schimer.
For any production with or without orchestra you will need permission from the copyright owner, Schirmer, and there will be a Grand Rights charge.
If you elect to use Menotti’s original 2-piano score (which is great, by the way!) Schirmer will also let you rent up to six books from the regular full chamber orchestration, and then you can simply “let go” of some of the 2-piano parts, and let those six instruments individual colors come thru. I once used the 2-piano version, and augmented it with the flute, oboe, clarinet, violin, cello and harp books, to make an 8-piece combo.
