This is the first publication of Rhapsody as an authorized Performing Edition. Pianist John York meticulously edited the work whilst for the first-time having access to the full color manuscript (held by the Library of Congress) showing all the intricate markings and comments by Clarke, Mukle and Hess. Significant contributions were also made by cellists Lionel Handy and Raphael Wallfish. Christopher Johnson, Clark's executor, has overseen the entire project and provided invaluable supporting documents in the form of diary entries and correspondence from the time of Rhapsodies first performance. Christopher's stewardship of this partnership has delivered the definitive publication of arguably the most important cello work of the 20th century.
