The Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, Op. 25, was composed by Johannes Brahms between 1856 and 1861. It was premiered in 1861 in Hamburg, with Clara Schumann at the piano.

Beethoven, The Five Cello Sonatas The five cello sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) span and represent his three master periods. The two sonatas of Op. 5 come from his early Viennese years; the great A Major Sonata (Op. 69) is the single representative of his incredible middle period; and the two Op. 102 sonatas epitomize his late.
Johannes Brahms, 1833-1897 Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in b minor, Op. 115, 1891. A Late Walk. When I go up through the mowing field, The headless aftermath, Smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew, Half closes the garden path. And when I come to the garden ground, The whir of sober birds Up from the tangle of withered weeds Is sadder than any words. A tree beside the wall stands bare.

The three op. 12 sonatas, dedicated as a set to Antonio Salieri, were not in fact Beethoven’s first works for violin and piano. He had already written a fragmentary work in A major at the beginning of the 1790s, though what we have amounts to about four minutes’ worth at most.

As in the last movement of Brahms’s Cello Sonata op.38 (and indeed in Beethoven’s third Rasumovsky quartet), the op.88 Quintet’s finale is a fusion of sonata and contrapuntal forms, albeit in a more lighthearted vein. Here, too, we hear Brahms drawing upon the music of the past: the first subject area consists of a fugal exposition in.
The unconventional feature of the sextets written by Brahms was the number of instruments in the ensemble; Brahms chose to complement and expand the traditional quartet with additional cello and viola, for it enabled intensification of the sound and made all instruments equal in strength. Two additional instruments are used to embellish composition instead of directly contributing to full.

The first movement is a sonata-form movement in C minor in triple meter. It begins with the piano playing bare octaves on C. The violin, viola, and violoncello then play the first theme, consisting of two sighing gestures of a descending minor second, followed by a descending theme.
For the repeating theme, Brahms adapted the chaconne theme in the closing movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's cantata, Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich, BWV 150.
