Brahms Wednesday Part 2: Intermezzo in A Minor

Yes it’s that time of the week again! I’ve added the second piece from Brahms Opus 116 to the playlist.  A beautiful piece in A minor entitled “Intermezzo” performed by yours truly.  The entire piece is really a great representation of Brahms’ mastery of motivic development.  Go J.B.!

I haven’t been able to find many recordings of Opus 116.  Just a couple of recordings on Apple Music and I discovered Glenn Gould’s performance of the fourth piece from this set.  Not sure if he recorded the entire opus (I don’t think he did).

Here you go.  Enjoy!
