Piano Pieces 4 Op 119 Ed Mandyczewski Piano Solo

Product Description

The Four Pieces for Piano were published in 1892 and 1893 along with three other collections of smaller piano pieces: the Seven Fantasias Op. 116, Three Intermezzos Op. 117, Six Pieces for Piano Op. 118, and Four Pieces for Piano Op. 119.

Each of the first three pieces is called an intermezzo, and the last a rhapsody (the German spelling Rhapsodie is also common in English publications). The fact that Brahms originally intended the title ‘Capriccio’ for his earlier Rhapsody, Op. 79, No. 1, suggests that he used such terms rather loosely. ‘Intermezzo’ can be seen as an umbrella term under which Brahms could collect anything which he regarded as neither capricious nor passionate. He completed these pieces during his summer holiday in Ischl, Upper Austria, in 1893, the first intermezzo being written in May and the following three pieces in June.

Since Brahms has combined these 18 character pieces in collections, he may have included some earlier compositions, and it is quite possible, although there is no definite proof, that some works—such as the E flat major rhapsody—may have been conceived before 1892. Two earlier collections of smaller lyric piano pieces, Eight Pieces for Piano Op. 76, and Two Rhapsodies Op. 79, date from 1871-79 (published 1879 and 1880 respectively).
