    Looking at http://pianosociety.com/cms/index.php?section=110 I had a little trouble locating some late Brahms pieces, because most of them are called "Intermezzo", but clicking on the "Intermezzi" link just takes me to the page for op. 117. It would be helpful if the index page included the opus numbers of each collection.

    Likewise, for Shostakovich at http://pianosociety.com/cms/index.php?section=974 I initially thought that "Preludes and Fugues" would refer to the op 87 collection, and wondered where to find the preludes (without fugues!) opus 34. Perhaps the link could say "Preludes op 34 and Preludes and Fugues op 87"?

    Yes, I know that Brahms thing is a little confusing. We have the Op. 76, Op. 118, and Op. 119 listed as Klavierstücke (Piano pieces). Only op. 117 is actually titled "Intermezzi". That's the way the pieces are listed pretty much everywhere.

    Regarding the Shostakovich - I think we are okay on that one, but thanks you for the suggestion, anyway.

    Right. So if someone can spare the time to add "opus 117" after the word "Intermezzi" and "opus 76, 118, 119" after the word "Klavierstücke" then it will be less confusing.
