Notes & Reviews:

Brahms’s two sonatas for cello and piano are the most important works in that genre to follow those of Beethoven. The Sonata in E minor, Op.38, is the first duet for piano and solo instrument by Brahms. It was written in 1865. The Sonata in F Major, Op.99 was published in 1887. Although written in traditional forms, this sonata has several innovative features: The extensive use of a rapid tremolo in both the piano and cello parts in the first movement is the first important use of this effect. Also unusual are the then novel key relationships.
