The first violin part for Brahms' Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68 has been edited by Robert Chen, concertmaster of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Chen's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.
The first major symphony to follow Beethoven, Brahms himself declared that the composition took 21 years, from 1855 to 1876 when it premiered. Throughout the symphony, Brahms draws on elements from his predecessor and the Classical era (including sonata form) while also experimenting with newer musical conventions and language which would go on to influence the Romantic period.
