Piano Pieces Op. 119 Revised Edition by : Johannes Brahms : Katrin Eich
Fingering by Andreas Boyde
Johannes Brahms' summer sojourn in 1893 in Bad Ischl was productive. Alongside the pieces op. 118; he also wrote his last cycle of piano pieces; opus 119. The composer wrote to Clara Schumann of the opening work; saying that it was teeming with dissonances and that: “every measure and every note must sound like a ritardando; as if one wanted to suck the melancholy out of each single one; with lust and pleasure out of the aforementioned dissonances!” Yet opus 119 contains something for every mood: No. 3 surprises with its lively and light C major; and the cycle is completed with the defiant rhapsody in E flat major. Our revised edition; based on the Brahms Complete Edition; is an invitation to pianists to rediscover Brahms' complex cosmos.
