Johannes Brahms was a pivotal figure in Romantic music. Of all mid-nineteenth century composers, he best represents the ethos of nobility in music, and his symphonies, chamber music, and choral works have maintained their exalted place in the canon alongside masterpieces created by the most renowned classical composers. This class will look at Brahms’s life and musical output, examining how his experiences provided decisive inspiration for his genius.
