Book Description

May 16 2012 Dover Music Scores
With this great early opera, Wagner achieved the first true representation of his mature style as a German Romantic composer. Reproduced directly from the limited 1896 Weingartner edition that corrected numerous errors and incorporated Wagner's revisions. In addition, the text and stage directions appear in English, German, and Italian.

Product Description

From Amazon

Der Fliegende Hollander (The Flying Dutchman) was Richard Wagner's first big success, following his promising but less-than-hit compositions, Die Feen (The Fairies) and Rienzi. Today, many still find Dutchman the most accessible of Wagner's works, and a good choice for the neophyte. You can follow the score and see how Wagner achieved his orchestral effects--like the tense, stormy music of the Dutchman's crew--with this full score from Dover. A full score is more fun for the armchair conductor, and more useful for the student, but they're not as good a deal for working singers who just need the vocal lines and piano accompaniment. Dover Scores are reprints of out-of-copyright editions from other publishers, and sometimes contain errors that have been corrected in more recent versions, but they're still the biggest bargain going in printed music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical Dover Score: Good Enough April 9 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
That pretty much says it. It serves the purpose adequately, but it's not a pleasure to have or use in itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flying Dutchman Score Jan. 26 2011
By Dramaturge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dover's facsimile of the 1896 Fürstner edition is excellently reproduced, with admirably clear musical notation (as one would expect from a late 19th-century Berlin specialist musical publisher) and only a couple of misprints, which in a score of this scale is remarkable. For home- or student-study this edition can be warmly recommended. German-speakers (or, like this reviewer, Anglo-German) may find the interstitial Italian libretto an irritation. But at this price, who can complain, especially as it has a sewn spine, which will bear re-covering in hardback long after the cover has become worn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Sept. 20 2010
By Mitchell Bolding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very clearly written music. Well labled, page numbers listed so it makes parts of the opera easy to find. Fair size print. Only issue is that the book is so tall that the book doesnt fit the height of the shelves on by book shelf lol. As this product description says "Dover Scores are reprints of out-of-copyright editions from other publishers, and sometimes contain errors that have been corrected in more recent versions". I don't know this opera well enough yet to be able tell if there are any errors in this score, but this is a fair price for a good quality printing of the score. I do recommed it :)
2.0 out of 5 stars No English translation May 15 2013

I wanted an opera score with the English translation right along with the original German. The description on line did not so indicate if the translation was done, which the seller should indicate.

The score score was fine except for no English translation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Power of the Sea... On paper! Dec 7 2004
By Marko Vuorsalo - Published on Amazon.com
From the very first D Major chord of the overture, to the final D of the third act, this score shows you excactly what happens!

The Horns' and Bassoons' "Dutchman" theme, sounding so wonderful, looks just as wonderful in this excellent score, with big type, and clear noteheads, easy to discern.

I especially love the clarity of the Introduction and Chorus, of the first and third acts. The low beginning notes of the Dutchman's Aria in act 1... E-sharp? Cool! Never expected to see that! Now, with the notes, being a bass-baritone, I can sing along with the entire Dutchman's part... (Not really well, being untrained, but... The passion is there...) "Wann alle todten aufersteh'n, dann werde ich in nichts vergeh'n..."

Ih'r welten, endet euren lauf! Ew'ge vernichtung, nimm mich auf!!!

Shivers down my spine, everytime I hear it!
