Hans-Joachim Hinrichsen's Hans von Bulow's Letters to Johannes Brahms, originally published in German in 1994, covers the correspondence between Hans von Bulow and Brahms from 1877 to 1892, with Brahms's replies, where obtainable, included in the commentary. In addition to selected facsimiles of letters, postcards, and concert programs, this research edition of the correspondence of these two giants of classical music includes a thorough commentary explaining individuals, events, and issues discussed in the letters. Authoritatively researched, Hinrichsen's edition of these letters, artfully translated by Cynthia Klohr, brings to life the world of music that Brahms and Bulow inhabited.
