Fingering by Andreas Boyde

In 1879, about ten years before Johannes Brahms composed his late, melancholic piano pieces, he wrote the two Rhapsodies op. 79 – two markedly passionate and comparatively extensive works. In a letter to the convalescent Clara Schumann, Brahms spoke in a typically understated fashion about the two pieces with which you can really run riot and test whether the course of treatment has actually had any effect.; We prefer to agree with Brahms' friend Elisabeth von Herzogenberg: the fact that the G minor is my favourite does not make me insensitive towards the intensely prickly beauty of the one in B minor.; Both of these popular works have now been revised on the basis of the new Brahms Complete Edition.
