Bloch - Schelomo for cello and piano

Bloch - Shalom for cello and piano. You can download the sheet music Bloch - Shalom for cello and piano on this page. Schelomo: Rhapsodie Hébraïque for Violoncello and Orchestra was the final work of composer Ernest Bloch’s “Jewish Cycle.” Schelomo, which was written in 1915 to 1916 premiered on May 3, 1917, by cellist Hans Kindler.
Bloch recounts about the work in 1932, which he describes as ”psychoanalysis” of his unconscious creative process, stating that the solo cello in Schelomo is the incarnation of King Solomon and that the orchestra represents the world around him, as well as his experiences in life. In addition, he also states that sometimes the orchestra reflects the thoughts of Solomon while the solo cello expresses his words.

The Rhapsody for Violoncello and Orchestra Schelomo of 1916 Is called after the Jewish philosopher and poet Schelomo Ibn Gabirol, living in Spain In the 11th century under the name of Avicebron. This melodical-ly ingratiating concertant confession, which seems to evoke before us the image of a conversation between the violoncello and God, is divided into five parts with contrasting tempos.

Schelomo is divided into three sections, with each section separated by the use of different textures and themes in cyclic form. The orchestration for Schelomo includes: three flute, two oboes, English horn, two clarinets in B-flat, bass clarinet in B-flat, two bassoons, four horns in F, three trumpets in C, three trombones, tuba, timpani, tambourine, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, tam-tam, celesta, two harps, violins (12), violas (10), cellos (6), and basses (4).
