Jongen Transcription Wanted

Anybody know where I can get a copy of this, the last mvt of the Sinfonia Concertante, arranged for solo organ? Heard a couple or arrangements recently, including Virgil Fox's legendary Riverside performance, and can't rest til I've learned it. The chances of being offered a concerto at my time of life are rare and this is one piece which deserves to be heard more frequently!

 

PS - see

And why play the final run with your hands when your feet can do it perfectly well??!!

:unsure::blink::o

Hehe :lol: I'm no blind fan of The Dish, but his technique and rhythmic drive are just phenomenal here, playing runs designed for two hands with one (1'57" onwards particularly neat), and apparently when suffering from cancer. Just love those bright tubas too... B)

Actually, thinking about it / him; he probably just played it from the full score - in his memory that is!!! :rolleyes: An arrangement may not exist...

You might be right there, and the organ score does contain plenty of cues, including many of the brass fanfares and some orchestral bass. Incidentally, I notice Fox does join in with the orchestra

, playing rather more that the solo organ part!

 

There is another excellent performance on YouTube

which is home-grown, but for me the performance (and organ) lacks the transparency and glitter of Fox's Riverside solo.
