When his contemporaries heard the works that Johannes Brahms had composed during his summer holiday in Ischl in 1893 – the Piano Pieces op. 118 – they were delighted. Clara Schumann was one of the first to be allowed to get to know the new pieces, and she attested that they contained a wealth of sentiment in the smallest of dimensions.; Philipp Spitta fittingly said that the works were perfect for slowly absorbing in solitude and tranquility.; Opus 118 contains two of the composer's best-known miniatures – the Intermezzo in A major and the Romance in F major. This volume is based on the musical text in the New Brahms Complete Edition.
