- This a British style brass band arrangement of Brahms' Trio, Opus 8 (for piano, violin, viola) that uses the major themes from Movement 1. It runs around 5 1/2 minutes long, has deep chords, running triplets, and some incredible themes. Brahms was a master at filling and changing chords by using techniques such as running triplets.
- Other parts are filled with full, deep chords made by the brass band that is much deeper than the original piano accompaniment and gives a unique sound that only a brass band can provide.
- Instead of using the full Movement 1 as Brahms wrote it, just the melodies were used and woven throughout the piece.
- It is a difficult piece with an extensive Marimba part as the primary percussion part. If after purchasing the score, you have trouble with the parts, email me at the address listed on the cover page. Speaking of the cover, Brahms had a love affair with early trains.
