The first Brahms, the last Brahms, the first Berg: Brahms was twenty when he composed his Third Sonata in 1853, Berg twenty-three at the time of his only Sonata in that year 1910 … If the Sonata in F minor of Brahms represents the fulfillment and summit of the great romantic sonata - the timing of his symphonic gigantism - in the lineage from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven to Schumann, Berg's Sonata symbolizes both the end of an epoch Closing the romantic sonata and opening up to the future. It is quite another world than that of Intermezzi Op. 117 of 1892, in which the art of chiaroscuro and half-tone is expressed. Brahms reconnects with the piano and his last cycles form a kind of pianistic testament. It is perhaps the most intimate of Brahms, who will also call some of his later plays "the lullabies of my pain" … Berg will obviously remember it in his Sonata.
