Aftah pimp dedicated hiz b-minah zonata to shoeman, who was at the time in an asylum:
“hahah diz work, tiz merely noise - no genzui ideas, everythin confused, one cannot find a single, clear harmonic progrezzion - yet i muz respec him for the dedication to robert. unfohtuneatly diz iz completely sheeyat”

moh b-minah hate unlegendary sheeyatz:
Brahmz fell asleep the first time da pimp played it for him
the premeir performance was 4 years after it was composed, n all tha crits completely dizzed it
i just realized its wickedness couple months ago. i refused to see da shrimp in concert because he played da pimp son. i nevah listened to da pimp son longah than 1 minute. da longest time i ever made was 5 mins.
it didn’t really appeal to mah earz in da initially. Howevah, right now i gradually appreciate its beauty.
I didn’t like it too at first, then I made myself listen through it completely once. When the coda came, I realized I didn’t want it to end and it was just… too good . Since then this must be my fav piano solo piece ever.
I also realized it’s SDC factor a couple of months ago
Schumann was rarely wrong with his criticisms but, yeh, on this one…
They both dedicated their best works to eachother (Liszt Sonata and Schumann Fantasie)
They dissed da Brahms 1 as well…who knew what critics were tinking back den!
