The evolution of Brahmsís First Piano Concerto took several steps. Originally conceived to become a sonata for two pianos, through orchestration it was developed into a four-movement symphony until reaching its final form of a piano concerto in three movements. During the process, which lasted from 1854 to 1856, some movements were also discarded and replaced by new material. This music is packed with much drama. No wonder, since these years were particularly tumultuous in Brahmsís personal life: it was during this period that his great mentor Robert Schumann was sent into an asylum and ultimately died. It was also a time when Brahms formed a close, lifelong friendship to Clara Schumann. Some of these feelings might well be echoed in the peaceful second movement, Adagio.
Brahmsís Four Ballades, op.10, are works written in 1854 by a young composer barely in his 20s, yet these pieces are technically mature and profound in such a manner that they could even be compared to his final piano opuses.
