The first violin part for Brahms' Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op. 90 has been edited by Jorja Fleezanis, concertmaster of the Minnesota Orchestra from 1989 to 2009 and (when appointed) the second woman in the U.S. to hold the title of concertmaster in a major orchestra. Fleezanis' bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.
Proclaimed as "Brahms' Eroica" during its premiere, the Third Symphony came nearly six years after his Second and followed a number of the composer's greatest works. By this point, Brahms was a fifty-year-old bachelor who declared himself to be "Free but happy," a disposition that can be heard in the primary musical motto consisting of three notes, F–A-flat–F. These notes represent the German for this phrase "Frei aber froh." It appears in multiple variations throughout the symphony.
