A pearl in the romantic repertoire for viola and orchestra! Bruch's “Romance” has long occupied a permanent place in the viola repertoire, whether in lessons or on the concert stage. Our edition is the first to take every relevant source into account. Like the original print, it also presents the composer's own easily playable piano reduction. As in many other viola works in our catalogue, fingering and bowing marks have been added by experienced violist Jürgen Weber. In 1911 Bruch also published an arrangement for violin and piano in parallel with his original version for viola. Our new edition makes his arrangement available once again after a lapse of many years. A welcome addition to the violin repertoire!

    This piece is definitely a challenge to play as well as getting the musicality to also show. I first fell in love with this music when i heard a performance recording on youtube. It's definitely a wonderful piece, and something amazing for those who love the romantic era as...

    i do. With this i fell in love with almost all of Bruch's work as well as his violin concertos. I wish he wrote a viola concerto!
