The Complete Sonatas For Violin And Piano: With Separate Violin Part (Dover Chamber Music Scores)

The Complete Sonatas for Violin and Piano: With Separate Violin Part (Dover Chamber Music Scores)

Brahms composed just three sonatas for violin and piano, all of them staples of the repertoire—studied, practiced, and performed by chamber music players everywhere. Musicians and students of music will be delighted to own all three works in this single-volume compilation, reprinted from authoritative editions.
Both Sonata No. 1 in G Major, Op. 78, and Sonata No. 2 in A Major, Op. 100, are intensely lyrical in nature, containing some of Brahms' most beautiful and expressive melodies. Sonata No. 3 in D Minor, Op. 108, a tempestuous work full of fire and passion, is a particular favorite with audiences around the world. The violin part, edited by famed performer and teacher Leopold Auer, appears both within the book and as a separate, removable score.
