We round off our volume with the Scherzo in c minor that Brahms contributed to the so-called "F.A.E Sonata", which he composed together with Robert Schumann and Albert Dietrich as a gift for violinist Joseph Joachim in 1853. With its stark contrast between the turbulent allegro and the emotional pi— moderato part, his scherzo has become a popular bravura and encore piece.
The present new edition is based on the New Brahms Complete Edition, and offers a musical text and commentary that have been revised according to the latest research. The fingering is by respective masters of their instruments Frank Peter Zimmermann and Martin Helmchen. - the publisher
