Brahms, Concerto for Piano & Orchestra No.2, op.83


       

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 28. Laaber, 2013. Oblong, 38 x 30, 21, 172 pp. Beautiful full-color halftone of the autograph faircopy. Since its premiere in Budapest on  Nov. 9, 1881 with Brhams as soloist the Bb major Concerto has become a mainstay in the repertory. The autograph, like the Symphony No.4, was used for the first performance and exemplar for the first engraved edition and as such is full of “performance & workshop talk”— performance instructions, messages, cues, corrections and other revisions that give the manuscript a living and breathing quality.
