Brahms ÿSymphony No. 3, Op. 90 in F for Two Horns ÿhas been lovingly arranged by Thomas Jostlein. This great work has never been arranged for such a small group before but Mr. Jostlein explains it this way:
This arrangement of the Brahms Third Symphony in F Major, op. 90, began with my arranging the third movement, completed in 1996 as a gift to my wife, Tricia, also a horn player. Upon revisiting it recently, I decided to arrange the other movements, with Gordon Cherry's helpful encouragement.
While a reduction of such a large orchestral work for a pair of horns may seem trivial or silly, it works beautifully, revealing Brahms' masterful harmonic, melodic, contrapuntal, and tone-color artistry.
It is hoped that horn players use this arrangement as a means of discovering these great qualities of Brahms, rather than as a performance piece. Have fun!
