Academic Festival Overture Op.80 Brahms Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Brahms's Academic Festival Overture was one of a pair of contrasting concert overtures — the other being the Tragic Overture, Op. 81, written to balance it. Brahms composed the Academic Festival Overture during the summer of 1880 as a musical "thank you" to the University of Breslau, which had awarded him an honorary doctorate the previous year. He described it as a very boisterous potpourri of student drinking songs à la Suppé. There are 2 original Brahms themes, and 4 themes based on such songs, the last of which - Gaudeamus igitur - 'Let us therefore rejoice' only appears at the very end.
