Brahms's Violin Sonatas

Style, Structure, Performance

Joel Lester

  • Explores Brahms's creation of musical narratives related to events in his own life
  • Shows how performers and listeners are inspired to create their own intepretations of Brahms's music
  • Uses a minimum of technical jargon, allowing performers, non-theorists, and music lovers to appreciate Brahms's compositional mastery
