OBP Goes Large with Richard Strauss

Almost all of our music for obvious reasons is for quintet or similar size ensemble. However for our next release we have changed it up by adding two sixteen piece Richard Strauss Motet transcriptions that make up his Zwei Gesänge.

The first music we have released from Festmusik: A Legacy, prepared by Dave Gordon Shute and Matt Smith, Der Abend and Hymne are now the largest scores available here on OBP. Scroll down to have a listen on Spotify.

Perfect for any music college or conservatoire they are scored for 4 trumpets, 2 flugelhorns, 2 horns in F, 4 trombones, 2 bass trombones and 2 tubas. Zwei Gesänge or Two Songs bring the late Romantic Strauss awesome majesty of sound to the large brass ensemble.
