Johannes Brahms: Scherzo In E Flat Minor Op.4

Books | Piano

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Johannes Brahms
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Johannes Brahms was not even 20 years old when he wrote The Scherzo Op.4 in 1851. The young composer and pianist used it as a kind of 'calling card' to introduce himself to influential musicians.

He also played the Scherzo to the Schumanns several times in 1853, and thus might have inspired his older colleague to write the famous article “Neue Bahnen” (New Ways).

In it, Schumann praised “single piano pieces, some of them turbulent in spirit while graceful in form”.
