Brahms was an accomplished pianist, whose output for the piano spanned his entire life. In addition to his solo works he made four-hand piano arrangements of many of his orchestral and vocal scores, to give them greater accessibility. The monumental nature of much of Brahms’ orchestral work is in part a sign of the great pains that went into its construction. His First Piano Concerto, which made no concessions to contemporary taste, was conceived originally as a sonata for two pianos, following his earlier three piano sonatas. In this recording we hear the earlier version for piano duet.
