Does anyone know if there is anything  written for piano by either of these composers? Just curious.

I think Mahler wrote a piano trio when he was a student, but no other piano pieces.  It's disappointing.  There are piano accompaniments for some of his songs though.

In spite of having primarily studied the piano Mahler never composed any piece for piano solo. In fact as far as I know he only wrote symphonies and song cycles. Even his song cycles are mostly for voice and orchestra. However you can try these:

Drei Lieder (three songs for tenor and piano, 1880)

Lieder und Gesänge aus der Jungendzeit (fourteen songs with piano accompaniment, 1880-1883)

Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (for voice with piano or orchestral accompaniment, 1883-1885)

Rückert Lieder (for voice with piano or orchestral accompaniment, 1901-1903)


Richard Strauss on the other hand wrote a fair amount of solo piano pieces, mostly in his youth.

Warner Bros. publishes a collection of them (“Richard Strauss: Early Piano pieces). His most important piano pieces are considered to be : 5 Klavierstucke op. 3, Piano Sonata op. 5, Stimmungsbilder op. 9. They have been recorded by Ludmil Angelov for Gega New (“Richard Strauss: Works for Piano”). Gitti Pirner has also recorded Strauss Piano music for Arts Music (“Richard Strauss: Complete chamber music – Vol. 7 – Piano music).

Now, are you sitting comfortably? Here are Strauss piano solo pieces :P :

Bernhard you are unbelievable. Thank you so much for this information. I know a lot of Lieder but haven't seen any of the Strauss. I am about to go into the Music library to see what they have. They know me very well in there!!  What a pity Mahler didn't write anything for piano.
