ABSTRACT. Cheung maintains that with its perfect proportion to its parent movement and its orchestral color, Mozart's cadenza ensures equality between the piano and the tutti. Cheung contends that each of Brahms' three piano quartets is composed of four movements, similar in external layout to the string quartets of the Classical masters. Cheung points out several musically salient features of Brahms' C minor Piano Quartet, and shows how their interrelationships con- tribute to the unfolding of a musical drama with an ironically tragic conclusion.
