Biography

Johannes Brahms, the last of the giants of the Germanic 19th century

Johannes Brahms was, to quote Robert Schumann, “The one destined to come”. In the northern mists, Brahms made his musical debut in Hamburg following in the steps of his musician father. Taught as a pianist, he played in the taverns and bars before going on a concert tour with the violinist Eduard Reményi who introduced him to the great Romantic violinist, Jozef Joachim. However his most decisive and significant encounter was to be with Schumann, to the extent that Brahms signed his first scores, “Kreisler Junior” to pay homage to the great master of Kreisleriana.
