Johannes Brahms 1833-1897

Brahms, a traditionalist among Romantic composers, poured his sad, heart-rending melodies into classical forms, with the desire that his symphonies and concertos should consist of nothing but beautiful music.There is a museum dedicated to Brahms in Hamburg, the city where he was born.

The only remaining home of this great composer, in Baden-Baden, where he lived between 1865 and 1874, is open to the public. Numerous original furnishings and exhibits are on display there.
