Details

Brahms Academic Festival Overture was composed in 1880 as a thank you to the University of Breslau which awarded him an honorary Doctorate. The work is a boisterous collection of student drinking songs but not without some of his patented dark melancholy in between sections.

Matthew McCrady has beautifully arranged the entire 10-minute work for 12-part Brass Ensemble, Timpani and Percussion, employing the rich sounds from Brahms' composition.

For advanced performers, the instrumentation is for:

4 Trumpets (2 in C, 2 in B-flat plus Flugelhorn), 2 Horns, 3 Trombones, 2 Euphoniums, Tuba, Timpani and 2 Percussion.
