    It may seem like every pianist alive today has tried their hand at Brahms - especially his last opuses from to But this hasn’t always been the case.

    The first two sonatas, in G Major and A Major, are quite lyrical; Brahms used thematic material from some of his songs in them, similar to what Schubert did in some of his larger works. The third sonata, in D Minor, is a more dramatic composition, and the outer movements recall the sturm and drang of his life when he wrote his first piano /5(29).

    As is true of many of the composer's works with nicknames -- e.g. the "Moonlight" Sonata, the "Spring" Sonata -- the "Emperor" moniker attached to Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 in E flat major, Op. 73 () is not the composer's own.
