Johannes Brahms (1833-1897): Tres obras orquestales. Overtura para un Festival Académico (1880), opus 80; Overtura Trágica (1880), opus 81; Variaciones sobre un tema de Haydn, opus 56a. Partitura general.
Edición de Hans Gál.
Johannes Brahms was one of music's greatest masters of classical forms, a composer whose individuality expanded and enriched those forms, giving them new variety of mood and a freshness of melodic invention. In writing for the orchestra, Brahms's independent approach brought unusual dramatic power and intensity to his compositions. Those qualities are strikingly evident in three of the most popular and most frequently performed works in the orchestral repertoire, reproduced here in full score: Academic Festival Overture, Tragic Overture and Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn.
This volume reprints, complete and unabridged, the scores of all three orchestral works from the authoritative Breitkopf & Hartel edition, still considered the standard source for the music of Brahms. Included is a new English translation of the Editor's Commentary, whch also appears in the original German.
The Academic Festival Overture, built upon German student songs, is, according to Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians, "a very successful and individual piece de circonstance," while the Tragic Overture is described as "a gloomy and impressive movement full of that peculiar sense of foreboding that so many composers ... have associated with the key of D minor." Variations on a Theme by Joseph Haydn is renowned for its spontaneity, melodic invention and delightfully varied orchestral coloring.
Unabridged republication of Vol. 3 (OuvertUren und Variationen jur Orchester) of the Complete Works Edition (Johannes Brahms; Siimtliche Werke), Breitkopf & Hartel, Leipzig, 1926. Editor's commentary in German and English.
