History and performance edition of the “F. A. E. Sonata” for violin and piano
The primary purpose of this essay is to create a performance edition of F.A.E. Sonata by Dietrich, Schumann and Brahms. This essay includes the composers' biographies, the historical background, analysis of the works, a discussion of selected performance aspects, and a new edition, including information about use of fingerings, bowings, articulation, and rehearsal questions.
Since only the third movement of the F.A.E Sonata by Brahms has gained popularity and has been published alone, this essay seeks to make this complete work more familiar and accessible to performers.
