The posthorn solo from Mahler’s 3rd Symphony is one of the most beloved moments in the orchestral literature. Nothing quite parallels the enchanting beauty of the call reverberating from afar while the orchestra joyfully tremolos onstage and punctuates with accompanimental flourishes.
This solo part of the edition is note-for-note the same as you will find in the orchestral version, and the piano part provides the harmonic, textural, and melodic accompaniment that would be happening onstage. Use this edition to practice for an upcoming performance or audition, or simply to enjoy the beautiful music.
