Johannes Brahms composed for symphony orchestra, chamber ensembles, piano, organ, and voice. A virtuoso pianist and uncompromising perfectionist, he premiered many of his own works. The diligent, highly constructed nature of Brahms’s works was a starting point and an inspiration for a generation of composers. Many of his compositions have become staples of the modern concert repertoire. We will explore him historically and biographically, and listen to much of his great music.
