Pianoforte Concerto No. 2, in B flat
Brahms
1 Allegro non troppo. 2 Allegro appassionato. 3 Andante. 4 Allegretto grazioso
Brahms's Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat is one of the comparatively few works of the composer that were well received at the first performance. Although display provides a very small part in the make-up of this concerto, it is extremely difficult to perform. Like the D minor Piano Concerto it is more a symphony for orchestra and piano obbligato than a concerto in the accepted sense of the term. It is certainly one of Brahms's most beautiful symphonic works, The slow movement particularly, which is for the most part a deeply expressive dialogue between solo piano and solo cello, is of outstanding beauty. Incidentally, in the middle section of this movement Brahms makes a short quotation from one of his own works, the song ' Todessehnsucht '. The finale gives the lie to those who contend that Brahms was unable to be light, airy, and gay.
