One of his most loved works, this accurate and faithful transcription demonstrates his immense skill for composition. This is a light, airy and illuminating piece that compliments the heavier second part of the work.
Originally set for B-flat Clarinet and Piano accompaniment he later re-arranged this piece for Viola and so can be played by either lead instrument. This is a magnificent work from Brahms' rich-textured romantic repertoire that is suited to players of an advancing level.
This Urtext edition provides you with an accurate realisation of the composer’s original intentions, with thoroughly detailed editorial markings and suggestions. This edition has been edited by Hans-Christian Muller. The solo clarinet part has been edited by Jost Michaels and the solo viola part has been edited by Emil Seiler.
The Clarinet and Viola parts are also included on separate inserts.
