Intermezzo in A Major - Brahms Op. 118, no 2 This piece is gorgeous. Yet again does Brahms manage to make a major key nostalgic, gentle, almost softly tragic. It is a composite ternary form where A is closed, B is open, and A' is again closed. A is a binary form, and honestly I'm torn as to rather it's rounded or simple.

The second Ballade, Andante, in D major, is structured much the same way. The opening though, is lyrical while the central episode is substantially longer and more varied than in the first Ballade. Brahms labeled the third Ballade in B minor Intermezzo. The three-part plan is reversed, with the faster music surrounding a slower central section.
