A two-minute piano piece by Brahms that had lain undiscovered since it was written in is to get its debut on Radio 3 this month. Entitled Albumblatt, meaning "sheet from an album", the composition was discovered in the library at Princeton by the conductor and musicologist Christopher Hogwood. Roger Wright, controller of Radio 3 , said the work was "an incredible discovery which gives a fascinating insight into the workings of this great composer". The piece is especially significant as the tune reappears, in a different key, in the second movement of Brahms's horn trio , written 12 years later. Service said that although Brahms was assiduous at destroying all his unfinished pieces, "because he'd left this at somebody's house he couldn't". That could be the case with all the other music we thought he wrote later — it may have had all kinds of prehistories that he destroyed," he added.

As he says in the video, it could be one of Brahms late Intermezzos. Since it is reasonably easy to play compared to most other Brahms, it has potential to be a very popular piano piece indeed. A wonderful interpretation. Thank You very much. It is an easy piece with a beautiful sound. I hope everybody, specially the piano students can enjoy it.
Perhaps I amy not stand correct, but I might have been the first or one of the first people at least to perform this work in the USA—what an honor! I included it as an encore at the end of my recital and explained the fascinating story of its discovery to the audience. After studying the manuscript I discovered that the Sibelius or Finale?
After having a good look at the manuscript and the printed version as well, I am totally amazed how little attention Mr. Schiff gives to what Brahms wrote. His playing of this marvelous little gem is totally boring and lacks any musicality. Very dull piano playing by Schiff, who has no idea who Brahms was, musically. However, this piece could be a nice encore to play. I like Brahms very much, he is capable to compose some very sweet music like this one as well as some very strong ones as the simphonies or the concerts.
I loved it when I heard it and I would like to play it in my piano. I found this little piece of Brahms early morning today 1. This new found piece of the young Brahms is a loveley example of his genius in his early years. Thank very much for presenting this so well done!
An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast because I found it for him… lol.
So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to post it here on your web site. I needs to spend some time learning it to understanding more of Brahms early composition. Thanks for wonderful info I was looking for this for my mission.
