Details

Bruckner's Symphony No. 4, also known by the composer himself as the "Romantic" was written in 1874. The Symphony was revised several times and finally premiered in Vienna in 1881. The subtitle actually does not refer to romantic love, but a medieval Romance such as some of Wagner's Operas.

The movement titled "Scherzo" is full of adventure and vitality with a relaxed middle section. Bruckner himself hinted that the Scherzo movement was a "Jadthema" or hunting theme and "Volkfest" or people's festival. The hunting Horns are calling, the Brass are blowing their fanfares and it is a good day to be hunting. The main feeling from this movement is a strong feeling of the great outdoors.

Mr. Johns has arranged this work for fourteen part brass ensemble including optional Timpani.

The instrumentation is:
4 Trumpets (including piccolo, C, B-flat and Flugelhorn)
4 Horns
4 Trombones, Euphonium and Tuba
Optional Timpani.

This work is suitable for advanced performers and is about five minutes in length.
