Brahms Forgery Debunked

The Johannes Brahms Gesamtausgabe in Kiel has posted an article detailing the attempted sale of a forged Brahms autograph by the manuscript dealer Inlibris. At issue is a forged autograph of Brahms's canon WoO 29, "Wann hört der Himmel auf zu strafen / mit Albums und mit Autographen."The dealer has since removed the item from sale, but as it has come up for sale several times in the past, the American Brahms Society is assisting our colleague sin Kiel by alerting the Brahms community worldwide to this forgery, hoping thereby to remove it from circulation.

Linked here is the orginal article, in German, from the Johannes Brahms Gesamtausgabe website.

Linked here is an English translation of that article.
