Christopher Hogwood's scholarly-critical edition of Brahms' final and
perhaps greatest trio op. 101 is based on two main sources, the first
edition and the autograph.
The foreword of this edition presents
information on contemporary performance practice; Hogwood has drawn on
the comments of Fanny Davis, a Brahms student, to shed light on this.
She describes how Brahms played the trio with Joseph Joachim and Robert
Hausmann at an informal reading (with Clara Schumann turning pages) in
Baden-Baden in approx. 1895.
