Milhaud, “La création du monde”

Milhaud’s La création du monde came into the public domain in 2020, so I decided to create my own edition for a performance I gave that year.

I have newly typeset the parts and done some very light editorial work. The main value-add I did was to rationalize the percussion part from a 1920s multi-staff disaster into a readable part. My set includes trumpet parts as originally written in C and also transposed to B-flat.

The piece is only public domain in the US. The score can be downloaded from imslp. The parts correspond exactly to the printed score by Eschig.

Luck’s had the same idea. I have no idea who’s typesetting is better, but mine costs a quarter of the price.
