Hannes ended up in Vienna, Austria, but he was born in Hamburg, Germany.  Surely you know some of these melodies from the hand of one of the Three B’s of Classical Music…

More about Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897) at JohannesBrahms.org.

  1. At one time I thought that Brahms was a composer that grew on you as you grew older. At least that has been my experience and currently I often listen to his piano intermezzi at the end of the day. But my 23 year old piano playing daughter also loves his music. Some years ago I was friends with a girl who had been a professional orchestral violinist. We were on our way to a concert together and she commented that the orchestra would particularly enjoy playing Brahms that evening. That comment has stayed with me since and has added to my pleasure in listening to his music.

    1. Quite so. Brahms is not overly easy to digest, and I believe he wasn’t very well understood in his day either. All the more reason to put some effort into it, and be rewarded, like you describe. 🙂
