Aequalis No 2

1847; missing bass part supplied by Hans Bauernfeind

The two Aequale, for three trombones, belong to 1847 when Bruckner was twenty-three. The second of the two pieces lacks a bass part, which has been supplied by Hans Bauernfeind. The unpretentious and serious harmonies could have been devised for a funeral or memorial service, and need a spacious acoustic.

Les deux Aequale, pour trois trombones datent de 1847—Bruckner avait alors vingt-trois ans. La seconde pièce n’a pas de basse, et celle-ci a été fournie par Hans Bauernfeind. Les harmonies, sans prétention mais sérieuses, peut-être conçues pour un service funèbre ou pour une commémoration, requièrent une type d’acoustique spacieuse.

Français: Isabelle Battioni

Die anno 1847 vom 23jährigen Bruckner geschriebenen zwei Aequale für drei Posaunen sind die ältesten Stücke in dieser Reihe. Das zweite der beiden Stücke verfügt über keinen Baßstimmenpart. Dieser wurde jedoch von Hans Bauernfeind nachgetragen. Die einfachen und ernsten Harmonien hätten für einen Trauer- oder Gedenkgottesdienst bestimmt sein können und benötigen jene weiträumige Akustik, wie sie in diesen Aufnahmen zu hören ist.
