Do you know if there is a recording of it?

Hi presto,

On this webpage you can download a recording by the Russian pianist Maria Yudina from 1948.  Not great quality, but you can hear the Brahms cadenzas.  Very Brahmsian!

Very Brahmsian!

A lot of Brahms; very little Beethoven.


I'm glad Brahms didn't try to make a living writing cadenzas ....  ::)
