Brahms, Johannes - Es ist ein Ros' enstrungen - Brass QuartetCherry Classics
Brahms, Johannes – Es ist ein Ros' enstrungen (Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming") for Brass Quartet.
Brahms wrote eleven Organ Chorale Preludes for his opus 122 work. Jay Hilfiger’s arrangement of “Es ist ein Ros' entsprungen” or “Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming”, for Brass Quartet beautifully captures the intent of the composer.
The instrumentation is for 2 Trumpets in B-flat and 2 Trombones. Also included are two Horn substitute parts for Trombone 1 and Trumpet 2.
The work is about 3-4 minutes in length, lyrical and very expressive. Musicians have agreed that this is a sublime work of true genius. Traditionally the chorale is performed at Christmas in both Catholic and Protestant traditions, but is beautiful at any time of the year.
