Theme from "Schindler's List" arr. Calvin Custer–performance friendly notation

    After encountering the “Theme from ‘Schindler’s List” about 4 times, I finally re-typeset it in Sibelius to eliminate the “eyeball tricks” you needed to do to read the original. Things like notes in the bass cleff being immediately repeated–but this time in the treble cleff, things like that. I only dropped ONE note and changed one other bass note up an octave to facilitate performance. Other than that it’s totally the original, but virtually sight-readable with no “tricks” needed.

    I’ll try and post it here. If anybody wants a copy, just contact me. I’m not selling this or trying to infringe on any copyrights, etc…..just making a performance-friendly edition available. It’s such a superb piece of music, and the harp/violin “duet” is so important that it’s imperative to be as solid and secure as possible.

    This will work for the orchestral version and the symphonic band version (arranged by Calvin Custer, which seems to be virtually identical to the John Williams original.) One weird thing is that the orchestra version seems to drop one bar in the introduction, which I’ve indicated.

    David, you are always so generous. Thank you for sharing your arrangement.

    Is there somewhere that I can buy just the violin part (for a duet) without having to buy the entire band score?

    Thank you, David.

    It looked like our violinist was using a piano book…there very well might be a piano reduction book with a “treble instrument” part in it. I just know it had a blue-ish cover.

    Thanks, David. I found a piano/violin duet that I could get online.
