Its strategy is to focus on a single critical work, the C-Minor Piano Quartet, analyzing and interpreting it in great detail, but also using it as a stepping-stone to connect it to other central Brahms works in order to reach a new understanding of the composers technical language and expressive intent.

It is an original and worthy contribution on the music of a major composer. --Patrick McCrelessExpressive Forms in Brahmss Instrumental Music integrates a wide variety of analytical methods into a broader study of theoretical approaches, using a single work by Brahms as a case study. On the basis of his findings, Smith considers how Brahmss approach in this piano quartet informs analyses of similar works by Brahms as well as by Beethoven and Mozart.Musical Meaning and Interpretation--Robert S.
