Product Description

Ballades Op 10 Composed by Johannes Brahms. For Piano Folio. Published by G Henle Usa Inc. (Catalog # 51480935, UPC: 884088511579)

The Scottish ballad Edward from J. G. Herders anthology of folk songs Stimmen der Völker in Liedern made such a deep impression on Brahms that, as he told a friend, the melodies came to him effortlessly. Edward provided the motif for the first of four ballade compositions, musical tales of a dramatic romantic nature that were linked with memories of Clara Schumann for Brahms. Julius Grimm, to whom the pieces were dedicated, also said that the Ballades are really for her. Robert Schumann was very enthusiastic about his young colleague's composition. The renowned pianist Lars Vogt provided fingering for our Urtext edition of this easy-to-play work. We present the scholarly musical text following the soon-to-be-published volume in the Brahms Complete Edition.
