Misc. Comments

Motets by Anton Bruckner


  • Grove Music lists the instrumentation as "str 3tbn", and Bruckner-online as "Str., A-Pos., T-Pos., B-Pos".
  • According to the Bruckner Gesamtausgabe and Ricardo Luna's recording, the instrumentation consists of a string quintet (2 violins, viola, cello and double bass) ad libitum, and 3 trombones.
  • Sure but the original manuscript hosted on the Austrian National Library states the instrumentation he provided as being mixed chorus (SSAATTBB), 3 trombones and 2 violins. No mention of extra lower strings at all... remember the instrumentation provided in the General Information section has to be taken from what the manuscript states, thus being the original.
  • Bruckner-online claims these manuscript string parts for 2 violas, 2 cellos, and double bass (from the archive of St. Florian) are in Bruckner's handwriting and are dated 1873 (although no date appears to be visible on the scanned images).
