Brahms Symphony No. 2 – Cello Part

Edited by Stephen Geber

Title: Symphony No. 2
Composer: Johannes Brahms
Instrument: Violoncello
Edited By: Stephen Geber
Instrumentation: Orchestral
Pages: 14

The cello part for Brahms' Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73 has been edited by Stephen Geber, who served as the principal cellist of the Cleveland Orchestra for 30 years, from 1973 until 2003. Geber'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.
