Fauré composed the Pavane in 1887. It was originally written for orchestra with optional chorus, although the composer later arranged it for voices with piano, and also as a piano solo.
The Aeolia arrangement is supplied with separate parts for flute and harp. The harp part includes markings for suggested pedalling and fingering. It is quite complex as regards pedalling, and is certainly not for the faint-hearted - but it does work!
|Please note that although the image below shows the actual layout of a page of the Aeolia arrangement, it does not reflect the quality of the printed version. This is because the image on your computer screen reproduces the original at only 72 pixels (dots) per inch, with the result that slurs are jagged, stave lines are not equally spaced, and the appearance is generally crude. The actual printed version is produced using laser printers at over 34 million dots per page, resulting in complete smoothness and evenness in the quality of the print.|
