Johannes Brahms began to manifest a keen interest in the genre of the violin sonata at an early age. In fall 1853 he offered the Leipzig publisher a violin sonata in a minor. The work was turned down, however, and the self-critical Brahms must have destroyed it himself later. He ultimately wrote his three major sonatas during his years of maturity: op. 78 in the summers of 1878/79, opp. 100 and 108 in the summer of 1886.The Scherzo in c minor was Brahms' contribution to the violin sonata which he composed jointly with Robert Schumann and Albert Dietrich in 1853 as a surprise gift for the violinist Joseph Joachim, and which is known under the name 'F. A. E. Sonata.' With its sharp contrasts between the furious Allegro and emotional Piu moderato sections, the Scherzo piece is a beloved bravura showcase.

  • 2009-04-17 00:00:00.0 Brahms violin/piano sonatas: beautiful but difficult

    To play these sonatas in the required tempi can present difficulties, since the range between bass and treble sections is considerable and requires advanced agility. Fingering in this Henle urtext-edition is helpful. Brahms' usual rhythmic variations are challenging as well.

    The G. Henle edition of the Brahms Sonatas for Violin and Piano is most interestiung in many respects:fingering and bowings which had not occurred to me; the print and paper are clear which makes for a most facile edition, and historical notation which buttress understanding and appreciation.
