The Piano Concerto No. 2 in B flat major, Op. 83, by Johannes Brahms is one of the greatest works of Romantic piano literature. It was completed in 1881. Often referred to simply as Brahms' 2nd Piano Concerto, the work consists of four movements, which is unusual for a concerto of this time, as most concertos only have three movements.

The four movements are:

1st Allegro non troppo
2nd Allegro appassionato
3rd Andante
4th Allegretto grazioso

Brahms began work on this concerto several years after his first piano concerto. Brahms' Second Piano Concerto is known for its technical demands on the soloist and its rich orchestral sound. The work was received with great enthusiasm by the audience at its premiere on 9 November 1881 in Budapest (with Brahms himself at the piano and Alexander Erkel conducting).

It is rightly regarded as one of the most important piano concertos of Romantic music.
