Symphony No. 2, mvt. 1 (Violin Excerpt)

By 

Johannes Brahms

The first movement of Brahms' Symphony No. 2 is occasionally used as a violin excerpt in auditions and orchestra evaluations. Composed in 1877, it is a part of Brahms' pastoral and melodic symphony. Violinists are often asked to perform specific passages from this movement to demonstrate their technical precision and interpretive skills, as it includes both challenging violin solos and requires musicians to convey the movement's lyrical and expressive character.

David Kim discusses how to make this work delicate, the importance of comfort and reliability, and arriving at the discoveries that only come through repetition.
