On the Emotional Colors and Performance Techniques in Brahms' Interlude Op.118 No.2

Xiaoan Zeng, Junjin Lai


Johannes Brahms was the last German Austrian classical master of the romantic period. In this era of significant changes in music style, Brahms' early creative style still retained some traces of classical style. However, in his later years, he became more passionate about small genre lyrical works. I believe that these works must be the gentlest and most monologue works of Brahms' life. The interlude Op118 No.2, created in the late period of Brahms, possesses extremely clever creative techniques and extremely beautiful melodies, and is later known as the "Love Letter to Clara". The emotions and performance techniques involved are worth further exploration.
