Here is a two piano, four hand transcription of Brahms Academic Festival Overture in 1880, on the occasion of his award of an honorary doctorate at the University of Breslau. He conducted the first performance there, a year later, in 1881. The piece is composed of well known youthful college songs, strung together with nice counterpoint and a forward leaning energy. Challenging for young pianists but a fairly easy read for professionals.
