Notes:

(1.) The years in which the works were completed, rather than published, are given. Brahms kept a handwritten inventory for the works through Op. 79; his letters provide information on the others. See Alfred Orel, “Ein eigenhÄndiges Werkverzeichnis von Johannes Brahms: Ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Brahmsforschung,” Die Musik 29 (1936–37): 529–541.

(2.) As discussed in chapters 2 and 6, Brahms removed the slow movement from Op. 38 before publication. Another three‐movement work, Op. 120, No. 2, concludes with variations marked Andante con moto but does not have an internal slow movement.

(3.) According to Brahms, he finished the string quartets, Op. 51, “for the second time” in 1873; most likely he had completed an earlier version by 1869. See Orel, “Ein eigenhÄndiges Werkverzeichnis,” 538.
