Brahms : A German Requiem (Cambridge Music Handbooks)
by Michael Musgrave
Book Description: The German Requiem is Brahms' largest work, written for orchestra, chorus and two soloists. It made Brahms an international name, and the scope and technique of the composition brought him not only a new audience but also comparison with Bach and Beethoven. In the past fifty years it has found new critical support as an original and progressive work. This detailed study examines its history and controversial reception, analyzes its textual and musical structure, and discusses performing traditions from Brahms' time until the present.

The Music of Brahms
by Michael Musgrave
Book Description Michael Musgrave presents a contemporary view of Brahms 150 years after his birth, seeing him not simply as the "conservative" figure so often stressed in the past, but as one who creatively reinterpreted a wider range of historical elements than any composer of his time. Brahms absorbed his studies directly into his music making and composition and in so doing helped to evolve not merely a personal language which was regarded as progressive and sometimes difficult by a range of contemporaries and successors, but also helped to establish an ethos of historical reference which anticipates the twentieth century. The Music of Brahms concentrates on the music, with Brahms's life discussed briefly in the introduction. The works are considered in four phases according to genre, with an emphasis on connection and on the development and elaboration of a unified language. The list of works includes recent discoveries and a calendar outlines the pattern of his musical life, including relevant information concerning performances.

Johannes Brahms : A Biography
by Jan Swafford
... Brahms embodied and ultimately bridged many seeming contradictions--conservative and progressive; classical and romantic; respect for the musical past and a propensity for startling innovation. Brahms would die in 1897, knowing that romanticism would die with him, and fearing that modernism, which loomed at century's end, would consign him to oblivion. From disparate elements that included an impoverished childhood and youth (he earned the money for his musical lessons by playing piano in the Hamburg brothels), and virtuoso "training," the young Brahms succeeded in creating an artistic identity. "The paradox is," states Swafford, "that in his art no composer ever had a more consistent and audible stylistic signature than Johannes Brahms.... From early on he knew where he was going.... " Swafford offers a compelling psychological unraveling of a creative identity crafted from contradictions to arrive at a Brahms characterized by "...passion constrained within abstraction, personal anguish dissolved in impersonal form." But Swafford doesn't idealize his subject, painting a picture--through the diaries and letters of Brahms's friends--of a testy, aloof, misogynic genius. Any lover of Brahms--of whatever depth or degree--will be grateful for the correspondences of Brahms's music with the life. Both history and psychology are well served. Writing not only with a great knowledge of the era, but a deep reverence and love for the subject, Swafford's interpretative skills reflect a contemporary sensibility that brings to life the rich circumstances that fueled Brahms's music. --Hollis Giamatteo - Amazon.com

Performing Brahms : Early Evidence of Performance Style
Performing Brahms : Early Evidence of Performance Style
by Michael Musgrave, Bernard D. Sherman, John Butt, Laurence Dreyfus
Book Description: A great deal of evidence survives about how Brahms and his contemporaries performed his music. But much of this evidence - found in letters, autograph scores, treatises, publications, recordings, and more - has been hard to access, both for musicians and for scholars. This book brings the most important evidence together into one volume. It also includes discussions by leading Brahms scholars of the many issues raised by the evidence. The period spanned by the life of Brahms and the following generation saw a crucial transition in performance style. As a result, modern performance practices differ significantly from those of Brahms's time. By exploring the musical styles and habits of Brahms's era, this book will help musicians and scholars understand Brahms's music better and bring fresh ideas to present-day performance. The value of the book is greatly enhanced by the accompanying CD of historic recordings - including a performance by Brahms himself.
