  1. Anyone interested in further discussion of meter,rhythm, emphasis, phrasing and phrase structure, started towards the end of the last class, especially with regard to this week’s Piano Quintet Op.34, esp. the scherzo?

    In defining Brahms as a “romantic” I find that this can mean anything from an “effect”, to a “mood”, to basic principles of composing, to the “Romantic” period. How much does Brahms
    adhere to structure and what does structure mean here? A clarification would be helpful.
