Pianist Adras Schiff premieres long-lost Albumblatt by Johannes Brahms (updated)

By John Terauds on January 20, 2012

It is very familiar-sounding Brahms: A long-lost sketch of a piano piece by the great composer, perhaps a study for the “Trio” section of his Op. 40 Horn Trio.

Hear Andras Schiff play snippets and discuss the piece with the BBC’s Tom Service and conductor Christopher Hogwood:

The full piece was part of an Andras Schiff recital presented on BBC Radio 3’s Music Matters, captured on this YouTube clip:

Plus, you can download the sheet music for free at PianoStreet.com.

NOTE:

In the “comments” section below, an antiquarian disputes Hogwood’s “discovery” story, with just cause. The extra information adds a bit of historical background, which made me smile with the remote Toronto connection: Violinist and Brahms mentor Edouard Remenyi’s direct descendants own Remenyi House of Music across from the ROM on Bloor St. W.
