Johannes Brahms: Theme - St. Anthony Chorale Variations arranged for Trio

The "St. Anthony Chorale Variations" were originally called "Variations on a Theme by Haydn" but it is now known that Haydn didn't compose the Theme. Brahms created 2 versions of his set of variations: one for Two Pianos (Op.56b) and one for Orchestra (Op.56a). This arrangement by Jim Paterson is based on Brahms' music but adapted as a trio. The music is illustrated here on Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon, though the parts provide for other options. The sheet music consists of the Trio Score, plus the instumental parts for Part 1 in C (e.g. flute, oboe, violin, etc.), Part 2 in C (e.g. flute, oboe, violin, etc.), Part 3 in C (bass Clef e.g. bassoon, cello, etc.), Part 1 in B-flat (e.g. Clarinet), Part 2 in B-flat (e.g. Clarinet) and Part 3 in B-flat (e.g. Bass Clarinet). So possible trio options include combinations such as: "oboe, clarinet & bassoon", "2 violins & cello", "2 clarinets & bass clarinet", "2 flutes & bass clarinet", "2 oboes & bassoon", or even "2 clarinets & cello", etc. See below for video, mp3, midi and score image.

Other versions of this theme on mfiles include: Orchestra (Brahm's Op.56a version), Two Pianos (Brahm's Op.56b version), and Piano Solo (Adapted from the Duet version).
