Brahms mainly composed the eight Piano Pieces op. 76 in summer 1878 in the summer resort of Pörtschach at Lake Wörth. Theodor Billroth; a close friend; was enthusiastic about the new works: “These are magnificent pieces; beautiful and interesting to play. They lie so well under the hand for those who are a little used to Schumann's and Chopin's technique that it is a pleasure to practise them.” As the volume “Piano Pieces” was published in 2011 as part of the Johannes Brahms Complete Edition (HN 6014); Henle is now replacing the previous volume HN 118 with this new one; presenting these magnificent pieces in the musical text of the Complete Edition; accompanied by revealing commentaries detailing their genesis and publication.
