Brahms - Akademische Fest-Ouvertüre - Brass Ensemble
Akademische Fest-Ouvertüre ( Academic Festival Overture ) by Johannes Brahms, arranged for Brass Ensemble with Percussion and Timpani by Lars M. B. Olsen.
Initially, Brahms had contented himself with sending a simple handwritten note of acknowledgment to the University, since he loathed the public fanfare of celebrity. However, the conductor Bernhard Scholz, who had nominated him for the degree, convinced him that protocol required him to make a grander gesture of gratitude. The University expected nothing less than a musical offering from the composer. "Compose a fine symphony for us!" he wrote to Brahms. "But well orchestrated, old boy, not too uniformly thick!"
And are we glad he did! Here presented to you in a splendid arrangement for Brass Ensemble by Lars Olsen.
