Abendklänge (Evening sounds), WAB 110, is a character piece, which Anton Bruckner composed in 1866.

History[edit]

Bruckner composed the piece on 7 June 1866. He dedicated it to Hugo von Grienberger, a civil servant in the district court. It is not known when the piece was performed.[1][2][3]

The original manuscript is stored in the archive of the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek. A facsimile of it was first published in Band I, pp. 104–105 of the Göllerich/Auer biography.[1][2] The work is issued in Gesamtausgabe, Band XII/7.[2]

Music[edit]

The 36-bar long work in E minor is scored for violin and piano. Of the 36 bars only 14 (bars 17-20 and 23-32) are played by the violin.[2]
