Famed German composer (1833–1897) whose works in the classical spirit, written in the midst of the Romantic era, take a place among the most enduring music of the 19th century. Rare partly-printed DS in German, signed “Johs Brahms,” one page, 9.5 x 9, March 1, 1869. A contract between Brahms and his publisher, N. Simrock, in which he signs over the rights to four vocal works, Opus 46 to 49 inclusive, as well his vocal/orchestral work Rinaldo (Opus 50). Affixed to a same-size card. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered creases, and trimmed edges. A wonderful document concerning his work at a time that Brahms was emerging as Europe’s foremost composer.
