The piano pieces opp. 116-119 were written in 1892/93 and are the last collections of pieces which Brahms wrote for the instrument. Particularly noteworthy is his use of the"small form"accompanied by a heightened increase in musical expression compared to his earlier works.

Clara Schumann, probably the secret dedicatee of the piano pieces, wrote in her diary in November 1892:"a true source of enjoyment, everything, poetry, passion, fantasy, intimacy, full of the most marvellous sound effects [...]. In these pieces I finally feel musical life drawn into my soul again and play once more with true devotion."

A renewed critical evaluation of all known sources has resulted in small deviations from previous readings.

The editor
Christian Kohn teaches piano at the Musikhochschule in Detmold . One of his specialisms is the piano music of Johannes Brahms, as shown in his highly acclaimed complete recording of Brahms's four-hand piano repertoire on CD with his duo partner Silke-Thora Matthies . For Barenreiter he has already edited Brahms's Serenades op. 11 and 16 for piano duet (BA 6570/BA 6571).
