BRAHMS, J.: Four-Hand Piano Music, Vol. 18 (Matthies, Köhn)

Brahms often produced four-handed piano arrangements of his orchestral, vocal and chamber music, following the practice of the time, which made his works more easily available to the general public. The final volume of this highly acclaimed series features the monumental Piano Concerto No 2 in B flat major which Brahms played through with the composer Ignaz Brüll in a two-piano arrangement prior to its première in Pest in 1881. The work’s scale and grandeur were soon internationally admired. Brahms also arranged works by his great friend, the violinist Joseph Joachim, among them the dramatic, sonata-form Overture to Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Op 7.
