The Compleat Brahms: A Guide to the Musical Works of Johannes Brahms

by

The Compleat Brahms: A Guide to the Musical Works of Johannes Brahms Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For all those eager to delve more deeply into Brahms's music, is an indispensable companion. In a single volume that covers every work written by Brahms, leading scholars from across the country provide details of each work's composition and discuss its important stylistic features. Interspersed are fascinating essays — such as "Brahms, Joachim, and the Schumanns" — that bring the composer and his contemporaries to life. Much more than a collection of program notes, vividly portrays the work and world of one of the giants of Western music history.

Book News Annotation:

A catalogue of the German composer's music describing nearly all the pieces. The 21 essays describe a single work or group of work, drawing on the writings devoted to the centennial of his death in 1997. They explore such dimensions as musical form, structure, history, biography, and affect.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
