Beethoven's Romance No. 2 Opus 50 has been a staple of Violinists for over 210 years, having been written in 1798. The C major Romance is a tender, adagio cantabile movement full of beauty, requiring grace, poise and elegance to perform properly. It has been said that it could have been titled "Song Without Words", the music being so lyrical of character. 'Romance' may have been written as a slow movement to a Violin Concerto that was never completed. This arrangement by Gordon Cherry is a wonderful addition to the Tuba & Bass Trombone repertoire.
Almost 10 minutes in length, this work for advanced performers will be a great addition to any recital.
