New volume: Johannes Brahms Gesamtausgabe
The Monroe Library is proud to add a new volume of the Johannes Brahms Gesamtausgabe (Complete works of Johannes Brahms), edited by our own Dr. Valerie Goertzen, Associate Professor of Music History. Dr. Goertzen’s volume covers Brahms’ arrangements for piano, four hands, and two pianos of works by other composers.
Being asked to edit a critical edition/complete works volume for a major composer is a coup among scholars in the field. Even beyond the prestige, it is truly a labor of love, with the work taking place over several years. Sixty five volumes are planned and 18 have been published. The Monroe Library is thrilled that our volume has arrived and is available for our students and faculty to use.
Congratulations, Dr. Goertzen!
