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.
