Johannes Brahms:
Symphony #3, Second Movement

for Trombone Octet

Blair Bollinger's beautiful transcription of this lyrical movement of the Brahms 3rd Symphony makes a wonderful addition to any trombone choir concert. The chorale like nature of the main theme lends itself perfectly to the trombone choir, and Blair has very skillfully imitated the passing of themes between the various orchestral choirs by splitting the octet into two antiphonal quartets.
