Johannes Brahms' Piano Sonatas; Op. 1; 2 and 5 were among the first works that the 20-year-old composer published. They were composed in 1852/53; although this “Sonata in F-sharp minor” was apparently the first of the three to be composed; as it was finished by November 1852. This work has a special place in his oeuvre. Besides its passionate atmosphere; his contemporaries discerned it to be “serious and dignified in character.” Brahms dedicated this sonata to Clara Schumann; whose husband Robert wrote to the composer that “Your second sonata; my friend; has brought me much closer to you.” The ingenious fingerings have been provided by the pianist Andreas Boyde; a recognized Brahms expert.
