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!
As with all of Henle's Urtext scores every facet of production has been carefully scrutinized and the result is a very clear and practical edition.
This affecting work is in the AMEB 8th Grade Viola List C.

Die Henle-Ausgabe für Viola und Klavier berücksichtigt erstmals sämtliche relevanten Quellen und gibt, wie die Erstausgabe, den sehr gut spielbaren Klavierauszug des Komponisten wieder.
