(featuring soloist Wilhelm Kempff, in a 1958 recording, late in his career, in Hanover)
The "Sonata for Piano in F minor", and "Scherzo in E flat minor", were a pair of comparatively early piano pieces, to be composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-97). He published both of these works, in the early 1850s, and his very-close mentor Robert Schumann's wife, Clara, first performed two movements from the "Sonata", in 1854. Johannes himself, did not perform the complete "Sonata", until 1863. Likewise, he did not perform the entire "Scherzo", until 1867.
Johannes regarded the "Scherzo" as his first piano work, that was "fully mature".
