Brahms Symphony No. 2 – Viola Part

Edited by Yizhak Schotten

Title: Symphony No. 2
Composer: Johannes Brahms
Instrument: Viola
Edited By: Yizhak Schotten
Instrumentation: Orchestral
Pages: 14

The viola part for Brahms' Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73 has been edited by Israeli-born Yizhak Schotten, an internationally acclaimed musician whom STRAD Magazine has called "one of America's finest viola players... a leading light of the U.S. viola establishment." Schotten's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.

After the many years Brahms took to compose his first symphony, the second followed surprisingly quickly. He wrote it during the summer of 1877 while visiting Pörtschach am Wörthersee, a town in the Austrian province of Carinthia. Again, Brahms preserved the structural principles of the Classical symphony while bringing in newer Romantic-era conventions.
