The first violin part for Brahms' Symphony No. 2 in D major, Op. 73 has been edited by Blair Milton, violinist in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and founder of the Evanston Chamber Ensemble. Milton's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.
After the many years Brahms took to compose his first symphony, the second followed surprisingly quickly. He wrote it during the summer of 1877 while visiting Pörtschach am Wörthersee, a town in the Austrian province of Carinthia. Again, Brahms preserved the structural principles of the Classical symphony while bringing in newer Romantic-era conventions.
