This volume offers for the first time a selection of piano music by Brahm's friends, which aims to be as representative as possible.
The works, which are with a few exceptions, either out of print or published here for the first time, span a period ranging from the 1850's to the 1890's. Besides the original compositions, it includes the first edition of the only two-hand Schumann piano arrangement by Brahms, a pianistically brilliant transcription of the Scherzo from the Piano Quintet Op. 44, as well as three well-known Brahms lieder in a sensitive arrangement by Theodor Kirchner. Otherwise, the volume contains smaller works of medium difficulty which are suited equally well for recitals or for teaching.
