The Scottish ballad Edward; from J. G. Herders anthology of folk songs Stimmen der Völker in Liedern; made such a deep impression on Brahms that, as he told a friend, the melodies came to him effortlessly. Edward; provided the motif for the first of four ballade compositions, musical tales of a dramatic romantic nature that were linked with memories of Clara Schumann for Brahms. Julius Grimm, to whom the pieces were dedicated, also said that the Ballades are really for her.; Robert Schumann was very enthusiastic about his young colleague's composition. The renowned pianist Lars Vogt provided fingering for our Urtext edition of this easy-to-play work. We present the scholarly musical text following the soon-to-be-published volume in the Brahms Complete Edition.
