Johannes Brahms' piano sonatas were among the 20-year-old composer's first publications. They were written in 1852-53; with the slow movement of this C major Sonata; which used the song “Verstohlen geht der Mond auf;” bearing the earliest date; April 1852. With this passionate and highly virtuosic Sonata; Brahms introduced himself to the great of the musical world of his day; including the Schumanns in Düsseldorf. Clara Schumann wrote afterwards that “... the whole is full of exuberant fantasy; intimacy of expression and mastery of form.” Brahms' op. 1 now appears in a separate Henle Urtext edition; revised using the musical text of the Brahms Complete Edition. The sonatas op. 2 and op. 5 will follow.
