Brahms - Symphony No. 4 for Two Horns

Composer: Brahms

Arranger: Jostlein

$32.50 USD



Brahms Symphony No. 4 in E minor for Two Horns has been lovingly arranged by Thomas Jostlein. This great work has never been arranged for such a small group before but Mr. Jostlein explains it this way:

This arrangement of the Brahms Symphony No. 4 , began with my arranging the third movement of Symphony No. 3, completed in 1996 as a gift to my wife, Tricia, also a horn player. I decided to arrange the other movements, with Gordon Cherry's helpful encouragement. Now I have completed Symphony No. 3, also for two horns.

While a reduction of such a large orchestral work for a pair of horns may seem trivial or silly, it works beautifully, revealing Brahms' masterful harmonic, melodic, contrapuntal, and tone-color artistry.

It is hoped that horn players use this arrangement as a means of discovering these great qualities of Brahms, rather than as a performance piece. Have fun!
