About this Item

Large Octavo. 858p. index. Avins' work is the first extensive selection of the letters of Johannes Brahms ever to appear in English. Over 550 are included virtually all uncut. Up until this edition English readers have not been able to read this rich thoughts though he corresponded with not only the great performers, musicologists, and conductors but also the scientists, writers and artists of his day. His correspondence with Clara Schumann is extensive and he also wrote Wagner and Dvorak. There are marvelous appendices including his list of correspondents, biographical sketches, and an extensive bibliography. A near fine copy bound in black cloth, spine lettering gilt, in near fine dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 016317
