Violoncello Sonata in E minor, Op. 38

Cello and Piano

Series: Henle Music Folios Publisher: G. Henle Verlag Composer: Johannes Brahms Editors: Klaus Schilde, Johannes Behr, Claus Kanngiesser, Egon Voss

The E minor Cello Sonata is the first work for one solo instrument and piano which the meticulous composer also had published. In summer 1865 Brahms offered it to the publisher Simrock as a sonata “whose two instruments are both absolutely easy to play” - and rightly so: contrary to the later F Major Sonata Op. 99 (51481135), this early sonata is technically less demanding, yet musically more striking at the same time, so that it is a hit with amateurs and professionals alike. Henle's new edition is based on the new Brahms Complete Edition and thus boasts, besides in-depth commentary, a musical text revised according to the latest scholarly findings. Includes a marked and unmarked cello part.
