Brahms Return to List of Composers
Johannes Brahms was born in Germany in 1833. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1897. Johannes Brahms

Johannes Brahms followed the classical tradition in form, but his music exhibits a strong lyrical romanticism.  

Brahms was born in Hamburg, and the discipline and orderliness in his approach to music might be attributed to his North-German origins. He began his career as a caf� pianist, and he was later encouraged by Liszt and Schumann. At the age of 29 he moved south and settled in Vienna.

He was middle-aged before he wrote his 1st Symphony.

He wrote 4 symphonies, 2 piano concertos, a Violin Concerto, a double concerto for violin and cello, and a great deal of beautiful  chamber music.
