Brahms: 3 Chorale Preludes, for 4 Celli
4 Celli. These somber works are slow and in a minor key: “Herzliebster Jesu”, “ O wie selig seid ihr doch, ihr Frommen”, “O Traurigkeit, o Herzleid”. Cello 1 is in treble clef and difficult, cello 2 is occasionally in tenor clef and intermediate, while lower 2 parts are easy to intermediate in the bass clef. Score and 4 parts. Recorded example is of a student cello orchestra playing second phrase from “O wie selig”.
Also included is a bonus 4th chorale, “Es ist ein Ros’ ensprungen”, more spritely and in a major key.
