Balmonts Russian setting was sent to the composer by an anonymous admirer while he was in Rome. Rachmaninoff often referred to the work as a choral symphony and even for a short time as his Third Symphony. Composed at the same desk used by Tchaikovsky in Rome, the piece has some parallels with the works of the earlier Russian master - notably the Pathetique Symphony and The Queen of Spades. Rachmaninoff conducted the premiere himself in Moscow on February 8, 1913. This new large-size vocal score is a digitally-enhanced reissue of the original 1920 Gutheil score transcribed by the composers friend Alexander Goldenweiser.

Unlike so many of the on-demand scores now available, this one comes with all the pages and the images have been thoroughly checked to make sure it is readable. As with all PLP scores a percentage of each sale is donated to the amazing online archive of free music scores and recordings, IMSLP - Petrucci Music Library.
