Violin Solo part from SCHUBERT - STARR; Fantasy in C Major, D. 934; for violin solo and orchestra (an orchestration by Mark Starr of Schubert’s work for violin and piano) Part 2 of 3

Franz Schubert
7 minutes
Classical music

The second part of Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major, D. 934, contains a theme and variations based on Schubert’s memorable song ’Sei mir gegrüsst!’ (I Greet You!, D. 741) This section is the lyrical and emotional high point of the entire work. Following the song/theme, Schubert presents four variations – each one progressively more intricate and passionate. Then, a developmental reprise of the introductory tremolo section serves as a transition to the exhilarating finale (Part 3.)

This cental section contains many optional repeats. I suggest performers follow only the first of these repeats – as I do in the MIDI performance realized with Scorch. Normally, the entire Fantasy takes about 21-22 minutes to perform – that is, without any repeats. If one were to take all of the repeats that Schubert has indicated, the total performance time would be increased to about 27-28 minutes.

I hope browsers of this score (and listeners to the MIDI performance) will express their opinions of Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major, D. 934, and my orchestral arrangement of it - either in an online review or in an email to me. I am always interested in reading the observations of those who examine and listen to my compositions and orchestrations. To send me an email, just click on the button marked EMAIL THE PUBLISHER.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
