Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen for Brass Quartet

By Johannes Brahms

Detailed Description

Brass quartet: 2 trumpets, 2 trombones (with horn substitution parts) - intermediate
Composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897). Arranged by Jay Hilfiger. German Romantic. Full score & parts. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2612).

Item Number: CY.CC2612

Brahms wrote eleven Organ Chorale Preludes for his opus 122 work. Jay Hilfiger's arrangement of "Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen" or "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming", for Brass Quartet (2 Trumpets in B-flat, 2 Trombones & Horn substitute parts for Trombone 1 and Trumpet 2) beautifully captures the intent of the composer.

The piece is about 3-4 minutes in length, lyrical and expressive. Musicians have agreed that this is a sublime work of true genius. Traditionally this chorale is performed at Christmas in both Catholic and Protestant traditions, but is beautiful at any time of the year.
