PIANO TRIO NO. 1 IN B MAJOR, OP. 8
PIANO TRIO IN E MINOR "DUMKY", OP. 90
THE REMBRANDT TRIO
Brahms was perhaps thr most self-critical of the great composers. It is well known that he destroyed many more works than he published. Perhaps twenty string quartets preceeded the three that he eventually brought forth as his Op. 51 and 67, and his first Symphony, not premiered until 1876, was the product of twenty years' labor and many discarded preliminary attempts (some of which, however, wound up in other of his compositions). It is therefore no surprise that in 1889, when his publisher, Simrock, desired to bring out a new edition of his Trio in B, he used the opportunity to thoroughly revise the work.
