The cellist Robert Hausmann had actually requested a cello concerto - but Brahms paired the cello with a violin in his “Double Concerto”. The unusual work has already been available as part of the new Brahms Complete Edition for several years. Using Brahms' original piano reduction, Johannes Umbreit has produced a playable piano setting that optimally renders the colorfulness of the score. The fingerings and bowings for the string parts have been supplied by the experienced soloists Frank Peter Zimmermann and Heinrich Schiff. The orchestral parts, based on the Complete Edition, are available from Breitkopf & Härtel (PB/OB 16104).
