Brahms - String Sextet No 1 B Flat Major Op 18 Study Score

As "one of the most beautiful pieces by the young composer", the B-flat string sextet was already very popular among the public and the press after the first performances in the spring of 1861 - and has maintained this position until today.ÊEven the publisher Simrock was so taken with the work that he had Brahms' suggestion to print a score in addition to the voices, which at the time was by no means the rule.ÊThe numerous differences between these two first editions published in 1861 present Brahms research with many problems today.ÊBrahms specialist Katrin Eich has already taken on this task for the new Johannes Brahms Complete Edition, the optimal treatment for the practice is now in the urtext edition - of course, also in votes and score.
