Brahms: new work to be broadcastBrahms: new work to be broadcast

A newly-discovered piece by Brahms will get its first full performance on BBC Radio 3 later this month.
 
Albumblatt, written in 1853 when the composer was aged 20, and lasting just two minutes, was discovered by conductor, musicologist and keyboard player Christopher Hogwood in an American archive. There’s an interesting link to another piece written by Brahms 12 years later – the work features a theme used in the second movement of the Horn Trio.

Pianist Andras Schiff has recorded the work for the broadcast. You can hear it on Music Matters on BBC Radio 3, Saturday January 21, at 12.15pm.
