Johannes Brahms: Schicksalslied

Johannes Brahms

Schicksalslied

Arrangement for chamber orchestra

op. 54

Description

With his Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny), inspired by a text by Friedrich Hölderlin, Brahms created a timeless piece of music with his personal interpretation of the idea of destiny. The work is impressive both in the concert hall and in a sacred space. With the publication of this arrangement for chamber orchestra, smaller choirs now have the opportunity of performing this work too. The scoring (for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, timpani, and strings) is identical with the chamber orchestra version of the German Requiem (Carus 27.055/50), so that the two works can easily be combined in a concert program. A trumpet and trombone can be added ad libitum. The choral parts match the original version, so that the vocal score and choral score from that version can be used.
