I have played the Korngold Violin Concerto a few times, including on the recording with James Ehnes. I just received a nicely engraved harp part published by Schott which has some discrepancies from my previous part. In the Romance (2nd mv’t), one bar before rehearsal #40, this version has an A natural moving to an Ab. In my other one, they were both Ab’s. Three bars after reh. #49, there’s a D which had been an E in the previous version. In the 3rd mv’t, two bars before reh. #94, there is an 8va written on top of the treble clef, and the bass clef chord is an octave too high. Two bars after reh #106, the chord in the bass clef had an 8bas under it and now this is missing, making it necessary to leave out the top note, which is already in the treble chord. I suspect that my previous version was correct, since it was, I believe, Korngold’s own writing.
