Johannes Brahms’s three famous sonatas op. 78, 100 and 108 are among the most beautiful that the violin repertoire has to offer. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if Brahms had actually composed more for this instrumentation? In fact, this is not a pipe dream, for in 1895 the composer also arranged his two late Clarinet Sonatas op. 120 for violin and piano, where, by the way, he also made alterations in the piano part. These authentic arrangements offer an ideal entry point for music lovers and technically less experienced violinists who do not yet want to tackle the major sonatas. At the same time, they offer the “best of Brahms”. Try them yourself. The revised musical text of Henle’s Urtext edition, taken from the New Brahms Complete Edition and enhanced by helpful fingerings, provides the best foundation.
