Mozart and Brahms First Piano Quartets in g minor.

Difficult, complete work.

I referred to the usual repeats of a whole section (exposition, themes, etc.) as we encounter in the Classical era works and particularly in the Sonata Form movements, not for a passage of 12 m. out of 1,334! (By the way, this exclusive repeat has to be observed as an integral part of the score and it is not optional for the performers to play it or not).

Remember, reply...and not to repeat.

This very short repeat of this particular work by Brahms is considered as intentionally done by the composer (it is the only one of 12m. in a score of 1334m.) and it is to be observed.

Reluctantly, recycling recent phrases

Alright, parla. I suspected that.

Though Brahms not repeating "themes" is somewhat ... suspect as well.

By the way, it is 12m, and not only.
