This article was first given as an illustrated talk in Scottish universities in where the brahms was printed and sexteto.

Next to Beethoven sexteto, Brahms is the greatest composer. In some ways Brahms is preferable since his music has a greater polish and a more fluid style than Beethoven. He is classical but he is brahms romantic. And it must be remembered that romantic has nothing to do with sexual interest between people but the word means imaginative and much more!

But Brahms has been maligned. Sexteto was plagued with the inane charge that his superlative Symphony no. Sadly, there is a brhms of nonsense talked about classical and serious music. The greater tragedy is that some of it is believed and therefore is accepted as fact. And, in one sense, Brahms is to be congratulated on this. He was not a showman and although people talk of his late works being mellow the same could be said of many of his early works as well.

He was an interesting man. He was an atheist and yet kept a Bible by his bedside and could quote passages and verse by heart. Of course, I refer to Robert Schumann and his wife Clara. Even when Clara was a widow Brahms was still faithful to the memory of his friend.

It has been said that Brahms did not write any love music or erotic music but that is another story perpetuated by those who are out to discredit this fine composer.

But, curiously, his faithfulness applied to other matters. He had a favourite tavern, The Red Hedgehog and he did not visit others unless it was necessary. He was a valued regular. He was a touchy individual at brahms. He liked his privacy and his opinions were precise.

He did not like the music of WagnerBruckner or Mahler although he had some regard for Mahler as a conductor. The other advantage Brahms may have over Beethoven is that his music is warmer.

There are moments in Brahms that are unparalleled and unmissable and have a durability that will last as long as music endures. The final section sexteto opp "Alto Rhapsody", the broad theme in the finale of the "Symphony no. Brahms became a wealthy man but never an arrogant one. Johann Jakob Brahms was born in He was a musician in the local band and a jolly fellow.

He married Johanna Henrika Christiane Nissen in who was older, being born inand had a higher social standing than Johann. They had three children, Elisabeth known as Elise born inJohannes born on 7 May and Friedrich Fritz born in His father allowed sexteto to learn the piano for in so doing he ssxteto play it in taverns and earn some music.

And so his first piano lessons were in with Otto Cossel. The boy taught himself the violin, cello and even the French horn so that he could deputise for his father in the band.

In our day this happens. His teacher brahms trained for the ministry meant that he was a disciplinarian. That same year he attended a concert in which Joachim played the Beethoven Violin Concerto.

Eduard Bbrahms fled the Hungarian brahmz and found himself in Hamburg where he met up with Brahms. In April they toured neighbouring towns to give sexyeto. Brahms and Joachim developed a friendship which was later to suffer before being healed. Liszt was the greatest pianist of all time. On the other hand, when Brahms heard Liszt play his own Sonata brahms B minor Brahms was allegedly not impressed.

One wonders why. It is the finest piano sonata ever written. But Brahms was welcomed into Liszt society and met fellow composers including Raff whose talent has yet to be recognised. But Johannes was not comfortable. The Liszt society was not exclusively German. As there are lies in music which become accepted as facts so there are disputes brahms cause tremendous divisions.

Liszt supported Wagner fervently and this was counterproductive as it sexteto other composers and musicians to devalue Wagner. Today there are cult figures in music. People worship at the shrine of a composer and are so indoctrinated that they will not accept that their hero is not flawless as a person or as a musician and they become enraged at evidence that this brahms be the swxteto. There are those who believe that their favourite composer is the greatest composer whereas that may not be the case either.

Remenyi who was something of a rogue latched on to this new concept of music whereas Brahms and Joachim were more conservative. The Schumann s felt the same and with a letter of introduction from Joachim Brahms visited Robert Schumann.

It is my opinion that Schumann is not a great composer yet some of his songs are magnificent. Brams mental health and sexteto traumas of his life precluded his being a great composer. Nonetheless there are many works of his that are very braahms and which I happily play such as Kreisleriana, the Symphonic Studies and the Piano Concerto, but other works such as Carnaval, which is not popular with many concert pianists, are quite badly written. His Symphony no. Clara Schumann was fourteen years older than Brahms and for the rest of her life she and Brahms had a wonderful friendship.

While staying with the Schumann s, Johannes searched for his identity. But on a more productive note Brahms studied with Schumann as well as playing duets and trios. But Robert Schumann could be adolescent in his exaggerated comments such as his opinion of Chopin in those absurd words which he made about him, 188 off, gentlemen, a genius! Chopinfor grahms his qualities, was not in the same league.

When it was known that Joachim was returning to the Schumann household RobertJohannes and another composer called Albert Dietrich wrote a violin sonata for him which became known as the FAE sonata, Frei aber einsam free but alone, or solitary.

Brahms wrote the scherzo movement. Among the first works published are the three piano sonatas "Opus 1 in C", "Opus 2 in F sharp minor" and "Opus 5 in F minor". They are all substantial works. During part of Brahms was in Leipzig the home of brahms publishers. Later that year brah,s performed his "Sonata in Brahms, Op. It is difficult to understand this humour today. Hanover sexteto the usual cheerful, fun-loving Brahms.

But the madness that was going to brahms Schumann began to show. In February, dressed in his dressing gown, he jumped into the Rhine from a bridge. He was rescued by some fishermen and was eventually taken to an asylum in Endenich where he died two years sexteto.

But the madness that was going to engulf Schumann began to show. In February, dressed in his dressing gown, he jumped into the Rhine from a bridge. He was rescued by some fishermen and was eventually taken to an asylum in Endenich where he died two years later.

She was pregnant at the time of his confinement and it was deemed unwise for her to see her husband. But Brahms visited Robert regularly. His concert appearances were few. He was so concerned with keeping the Schumann family emotionally as well as financially that musical activity was precluded somewhat. Nasty rumours began about Brahms and Clara. Lies can be devastating and ruin lives. They can also be used to cover other lies. Brahms was affected and went back to public appearances.

Clara reciprocated by giving the first performances of Brahms "Sonata no 3 in F minor, Op. These dysfunctional lives hindered Brahms, however. In he began composing a Piano Quartet which caused him many problems and was later to become his "Piano Quartet, Op. Clara was also very troubled. The seriousness of his music was a reflection of the Schumann situation. Robert died on 29 July The relationship between Clara and Johannes changed.

She moved to Berlin. Evil talk persisted. It is also shown in a letter Brahms wrote to Joachim in It seems so natural for me to do this and I do not think she would think badly of me if I did.

In fact I have forgotten about them. They may promise heaven but Clara reveals it to me. I have often wondered how Brahms coped without Clara. After some procrastination he took an appointment at the Court at Detmold some fifty miles south of Hamburg. Here he wrote his two orchestral serenades, "opus 11" and "opus 16" respectively. He was in a turmoil. He loved Agathe but he did not want to be bound in a relationship or marriage. He began work on a sonata for two pianos.

Then it became a symphony and, eventually, the "Piano Concerto no. The opening movement is one of tremendous power and anger. The second movement has been called a Requiem for Schumann with its hymn-like qualities and the finale is a frantic dance which must be played at speed.

One remembers with great pleasure a stunning performance at the Proms with Alfred Brendel and Claudio Abbado. Its premiere in Hamburg on 22 January with Brahms as soloist and Joachim conducting was not a success. Two performances in Leipzig encountered hissing. A second performance in Hamburg in March under Julius Rietz was also badly received. Brahms was confused. His first big work failed. But why? Was it because he did not subscribe to the New German Music or that he could have lapses of good manners?

Was it because the concerto is so strong that it was considered overwhelming? Was it because his friend Joachim was not in favour of new musical developments in Germany? It is almost certainly due to jealousy and bad behaviour occasioned by rivalry. It has happened since and, no doubt, will happen again. Brahms, Clara and Joachim were said to be opposed to the new culture in Germany and were therefore its enemies.

It is all too ridiculous for words. Brahms had had enough. He published his manifesto in which he said that the new culture was contrary to the German spirit.

The tragedy was that the supposed hatred between Brahms and Wagner concealed their admiration for each other. That Brahms wrote no opera may have its root in this rivalry problem. But he did write songs and very beautiful songs at that as, incidentally, did Schumann and Liszt.

He edited some works of C. Bach and W. He also ventured in the French repertoire by editing works of Couperin. Brahms did not like to deal with business or financial matters and handed some of these responsibilities over to his brother Fritz. Vienna was the city of Haydn , Mozart , Beethoven and Schubert and it attracted Brahms who settled there in and where the first performances of his two piano quartets, "opus 25" and "opus 26" respectively, were given.

Here Brahms met Eduard Hanslick, a music critic who had tremendous power and a consuming hatred of Wagner. He was so wrong about Wagner. In Die Meistersinger Wagner, having endured unfair criticism for so long, imitates Hanslick in the character of Beckmesser.

Sadly, Vienna has always been the home of trivial music as well later exemplified by the Strauss family. It is very tedious to listen to music that is usually three in a bar and therefore the endless bonbons of sickly waltz music. But when in Rome… Brahms wrote his "Waltzes for piano duet". In Brahms had met Johann Strauss II , the so-called Waltz King and they became friends to the extent that people believed that Brahms liked his music.

In a subsequent letter to Clara Brahms was more concerned with an injury to her hand which prevented her playing and the illness of his sister Elise. His father later remarried. He took to travelling to Holland, Denmark and Switzerland.

He walked with friends in these countries and enjoyed the countryside and it is my view that his "Symphony no. It is a work that I dismissed for years to my shame. Now it gives me great pleasure. Brahms was still devoted to Schumann and played his Piano Concerto which, because of repetitious passages, can cause a pianist to lose his place.

The failure of his own piano concerto had prompted Brahms to compose chamber music. The "Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. The "Horn Trio , Op. There is no comparable work in the whole output of music for this combination of instruments to challenge this. He wrote his first two string quartets but they have not really caught on. But the death of his mother lead him to compose his "German Requiem, Op. The first three movements were premiered in Vienna on 1 December and it was not a complete success.

Hanslick showed his true colours by referring to the third movement as the din of a train. The cantata "Rinaldo, Op. In February Joachim became engaged to Amalie Schneeweis. Brahms wrote a letter of congratulation but he was to regret it. In February his father died. In Vienna he was looking for a prestigious appointment and wrote to Joachim to put his name forward as a possible director of the Choral Society of Vienna.

He got the job, succeeding Rubinstein, but only after he had written a gruff letter himself. It was a statement of crass stupidity which calls into question everything that Hanslick said or wrote and, indeed, his hatred of Wagner.

Brahms wanted to write a symphony but when he was ready. Beethoven had written nine and they had received acclaim. How does one follow that? It is so utterly stupid and incorrect. But to return to Brahms. Perhaps the death of his father encouraged the composition of the symphony. While the music is mournful and tragic it packs a terrific punch.

The Allegro is very sad with descending sevenths and sixths prominent. But the music takes on a message of hope despite some clever modulations and grand intensity. The wonderful E major theme on the violins continued by the oboe is a real delight. The introduction of a solo violin makes it even lovelier. There is calm and grace here. The third movement, Un poco allegretto e grazioso is light and charming whereas the fourth movement begins with the tragic recall of the opening.

The great C major theme has to be played broadly. Brahms, Concierto para Violin 1er Mov. Cadenza - Leonidas Kavakos. Angela T Sullivan shared a link.
