    Academic Festival Overture, op 80 (McCrady) [423.21 w/timpani & percussion]

    Romantic. Brahms Academic Festival Overture was composed in 1880 as a thank you to the University of Breslau which awarded him an honorary Doctorate. The work is a boisterous collection of student drinking songs but not without some of his patented dark melancholy in between sections. Matthew McCrady has arranged the entire 10-minute work for 12-part brass ensemble, timpani and percussion, employing the rich sounds from Brahms' composition. For advanced performers, the instrumentation is for 4 trumpets (2 in C, 1 in Bb, 1 flugelhorn), 2 horns, 3 trombones, 2 euphoniums, tuba, timpani and 2 percussion. -the publisher
