ABRSM Grade 8 - Piano Exam Pieces


Brahms - Intermezzo in E (No. 6 from Fantasies, Op. 116)

ABRSM Grade 8 - B1

Brahms’ late piano pieces are among his most personal and intimate music. This bittersweet, nostalgic Intermezzo is from the set of Fantasies, Op. 116, completed in 1892. Within the progression of harmonies in the outer sections we discover interweaving melodic lines; imagine a dialogue between a violin and a viola and the different tone colours this implies. Even though the texture changes in the middle section and in the coda, this conversation continues throughout.
