Johannes Brahms: Four Ballades

These four Ballades could almost be considered an unlabelled sonata, since they link together into a very compelling dramatic narrative.
The first of the set is the only one to be assigned with an explicit program by the composer. It is based on the Scottish ballad Edward, the dialogue structure of which Brahms follows.
In the ballad Edward’s mother questions her son, who first dissimulates, then confesses that he has just killed his father. He then departs cursing his mother, who apparently put Edward up to the crime in the first place.
