Ludwig Van Beethoven: Three Equali For Four Trombones WoO 30

Books | Trombone (Quartet)

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts
When Beethoven visited the director of music at the cathedral in Linz, Franz Xaver Glöggl, in autumn 1812, the latter asked his guest to "compose socalled Equali for 4 trombones for All Souls’ Day [2 November]”. Beethoven readily complied – and it was to be his own funeral music. For in 1827 the Equali were sung in an arrangement for male choir as a “dirge for Beethoven’s funeral procession”.

The original instrumental version is today a core work in the trombonist’s repertoire. Henle's Urtext edition is based on the musical text in the Beethoven Complete Edition and contains a score and single parts (both in the original C and in modern bass clef).
