    String Sextet No 2 in G, op 36 (Eich) [set of parts]

    Romantic. For 2 violins, 2 violas and 2 cellos. Set of parts.

    Brahms's First String Sextet became very popular after its publication in 1861, yet his publisher Simrock still hesitated when the composer offered him a second such work in 1865, "in the same cheerful mood." So Brahms made overtures to other publishers,and then Simrock finally agreed to take it on. The critics were initially rather skeptical towards this Sextet op. 36, but Brahms's friends thoroughly approved of it. Clara Schumann praised its accomplished motivic work, while others enthused about its magical sound colors. This practical edition by Katrin Eich, based on the Brahms Complete Edition, now offers performers the opportunity to form their own opinion, whether in performance or by perusing our study edition. The parts include player-friendlycue notes and have excellent page-turns. -the publisher
