Oblong, 33 x 26 cm, 46 pp. Fine color reproduction of Brahms’ elegant autograph fair copy, dated and signed May 1882.  The work was composed in  the upper Austrian town of Bad Ischl, during one of Brahms' many trips to get away from urban life. This is a "viola" quintet (following the model of Mozart), that is, a string quartet plus extra viola. Brahms cited it as one of his finest compositions. Limited bibliophile edition of 200 copies. Handsomely bound in dark burgundy leatherette with the composer’s signature embossed in silver. $185
