This volume prints both of Walton's orchestrations: his initial scoring (1929) and his reduced orchestrations of 1962. It also for the first time restores the solo part as edited by Frederick Riddle, an early soloist and champion of the work, who devised numerous idiomatic phrasings and bowings with the approval of the composer. The volume is completed by critical notes, facsimiles, and an introduction. Full performing material for both orchestrations is available from the Hire Library from the publisher.
