Brahms Symphony in D Maj Op 72 #2 - Study Score

"The novelty was a great, unqualified success" wrote the critic Hanslick, after the first performance of Brahms' second symphony, given by the Vienna Philharmonic under Hans Richter on 30th December 1877. It followed only a year after his first symphony, and was naturally compared to that work. Brahms had led his friends well up the garden path, claiming to his publisher that the symphony "is so melancholy that you will not be able to bear it. I have never written anything so sad, and the score must come out in mourning." (Nov.22nd, 1877) He persisted in the joke right up to (and after!) the first performance, which made the contrast with the seriousness of the first symphony all the greater.
