Talk:2 Clarinet Sonatas, Op.120 (Brahms, Johannes)

The Violin version of these Sonatas are not less "authorized" than the Viola one. Both transcriptions, it was presumed, were made by Joachim - Simrock. We only know that Brahms played the viola version and owned the printed part of these sonatas. He was driven and/or compelled by Simrock to authorize transcriptions only for commercial reasons, but we know (it's written in his letters) he was not satisfied by those arrangements
