Begräbnisgesang Opus 13 (Funeral Song) for Trombone Ensemble/choir with Optional Timpani
Brahms' Opus 13, Begräbnisgesang or "Funeral Song" has been beautifully transcribed for 11 part Trombone ensemble with optional Timpani by Trombonist Gregory Campbell of the Miami Symphony.
This is an early composition by Brahms for Chorus and Orchestra, yet this work has all of the hallmarks of greatness which he later used in his large choral works, such as the German Requiem. The noble sound of the Trombone Ensemble makes this arrangement a perfect match for the serious mood of the work.
Tenor clef is used in the upper parts. The range and technique required is well within most intermediate performers.
Length of the work is about 8 minutes.
Arranged by: Gregory Campbell
