To this day, the three violin sonatas by Johannes Brahms have become a part of the standard violin repertoire. All composed just under a decade, his sonatas are filled with beautiful lyricism, passion, and contrasting emotions. Brahms's relationships with his friends, such as violinist Joseph Joachim and contralto singer Hermine Spies, influenced some of his works.
This project report is an examination of the Brahms Sonata No. 2 for Piano and Violin, Opus 100 through history, analysis, and interpretations. The history of Brahms's life and influences were observed in order to understand his personality and the meaning behind his music. The sonata was studied through musical detail, looking carefully at how the dynamics, phrasing, and voicing shape the piece. Two artists were compared with their own interpretations of the second sonata. The purpose of this study is for one to create their own idea and voice in preparation for a performance of the piece.
