[+] Braun, Hartmut. "Ein Zitat Beziehungen zwischen Chopin und Brahms." Die Musikforschung 25 (July/September 1972): 317-21.

In mm. 63-64 of his Intermezzo, Op. 116, No. 2, Brahms quotes and at the same time distills mm. 33-40 from Chopin's Mazurka, Op. 7, No. 2. Although both harmony and melody correspond only partially, this is a clear case of quotation, in which the two measures point to the complete model: Brahms used the motivic material in question at formally similar places as Chopin and also the key schemes correspond.
