The Last Act of Brahms's Late Turn to F Major

The Last Act of Brahms's Late Turn to F Major The Second Cello Sonata, Op. 99, was the third multi‐movement composition that Brahms produced in F major during the mid‐1880s, when he turned to F major in that capacity for the first time. One of the works of summer 1886 that elevated Brahms's opus numbers to three digits and occasioned Simrock's first Thematisches Verzeichniss, the Sonata was written just as followers of his music were becoming equipped to chart connections between thematic incipits and as he became more attuned to presenting an oeuvre. It richly rewards an intertextual reading of its musical fabric, especially relative to the First String Quintet and the Third Symphony. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Music Analysis Wiley

Abstract

The Second Cello Sonata, Op. 99, was the third multi‐movement composition that Brahms produced in F major during the mid‐1880s, when he turned to F major in that capacity for the first time. One of the works of summer 1886 that elevated Brahms's opus numbers to three digits and occasioned Simrock's first Thematisches Verzeichniss, the Sonata was written just as followers of his music were becoming equipped to chart connections between thematic incipits and as he became more attuned to presenting an oeuvre. It richly rewards an intertextual reading of its musical fabric, especially relative to the First String Quintet and the Third Symphony.
