Score of Pianoconcerto II, marked with tempo modifications

Score of Pianoconcerto II, marked with tempo modifications

Description: The tempo modifications marked in the score are the result of studying the music through the lens of my previous research which can be found in the articles about tempo modification in the research section of the website. I have also looked closely at recordings with Fiedler and Ney (1939), Coates and Rubinstein (1929) and others. These will serve as a starting point in the rehearsals with Olga Pashchenko in the third project week.

A Critical Review of Two Recordings of the Finale of Brahms’s Third Symphony

Description: During the 20th Century tempo modifications in orchestral performances, other than the ones written in the score, became increasingly rare. In this essay, I look closely at two exciting recordings that in spite of this general trend, have an abundance of tempo modification: a live recording by the Berlin Philharmonic and Furtwängler, from 1949, and a live recording by the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Tognetti, from 2020.

Annotated score of Brahms Third Symphony with intended tempo modifications

Annotated score of Brahms Third Symphony with intended tempo modifications

Description: In this score (not an urtext score) I marked all the tempo modifications I intend to apply in the performance of the Third Symphony in September 2021. My ideas are based on historical research as described in my study of 6 historical recordings of the Second Symphony and the evaluation of the recording of the Second Symphony, that can both be found on this website, as well as my more recent analysis and study of recordings of this Symphony. After analyzing the recordings of Tognetti and Furtwängler, I have made some adjustments in my markings. This is an updated version of the earlier score.

A new Brahms

Historically Inspired Modernism

Description: Recognising that we can not recreate a historical truth is important. In this article, which I shared with the musicians before the project started, I write about my preference for the title HIM to HIPP. I believe that what I we do in the context of this project can best be described as Historically Inspired Modernism. It is an effort to apply lost expressive tools of the nineteenth century in such a way that the music speaks to an audience of the twenty first century.

A closer look at some tempo modifications in my recording of the First movement of the Second Symphony

Description: In his article I analyze my own recording in the same way I have analyzed the historical recording in my study 'In Search of sounding evidence of traces of Fritz Steinbach's approach to Brahms's Second Symphony' which can also be found on this site. I provide examples of tempo modifications through links to the recording and I give my motivation for applying the modifications the way I did.
