Intermezzo in A Major (Op. 118 No. 2)
A textbook analysis of the form, structure, harmony etc. of any piece of music is likely to be on the dry side, so I decided to bring some imagination and a fair bit of creative license to my own very personal interpretation of the Intermezzo. This series of videos looks at the work section by section, focussing on feelings, ideas, colours - and a narrative that has evolved in my imagination over the years.
This first video gives a little background to Brahms’ relationship with Robert and Clara Schumann, and to the special connection Brahms had with Clara after Robert’s untimely death.
