AN ANALYSIS OF THE FIRST MOVEMENT OF THE CONCERTO FOR VIOLIN AND ORCHESTRA, OP.77 BY JOHANNES BRAHMS: APPLICATIONS IN PERFORMANCE

by PHELAN, VINCENT J.

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis argues that the thoughtful consideration of musical elements in a piece of music enhances the experience for the primary listener, the performer. Using the score of Brahms's concerto as the primary reference source, I have studied the large scale form as well as connections between themes, and between the elements of harmony, rhythm, melody, and dynamics. I have used my analysis to make performance points for selected passages in the first movement of the concerto. Included is a selected discography for Brahms's concerto.
