Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 19. Laaber, 2014. Oblong, 38 x 30 cm, xviii, 106 pp.
Beautiful full-color halftone of the autograph. Contains numerous corrections and adjustments involving phrasing, dynamics and minor note changes by Brahms’ revered friend Joseph Joachim. This Ms provides a unique glimpse into the creative process almost unknown in history of music: sometimes differences in opinion occur between "interpreter" and "composer", and Brahms reacting adversely to Joachim's changes, rejecting them in part, or taking them up merely in a modified form. This facsimile provides for the first time reproductions of Joachim's correction to the solo Violin part in the hand of a copyist, shedding light on important nuances of the piece. An indispensable source for conductors, musicologists, performers and Brahms lovers. Hardbound with paper boards printed with attractive floral design. $240
