Bigger Than Life
Johannes Brahms

Brahms was born in Hamburg in 1833 and died in Vienna in 1897. His father, Johann Jakob Brahms, taught him the violin and his piano lessons came from Otto Cossal. Composition lessons were administered by Eduard Marxsen.

His early years saw the composer earning money playing at theatres, taverns and brothels. One of his first breaks came in 1851, when he met violinist Eduard Reményi and subsequently Joseph Joachim, another famous violinist of that time. This sequence of events eventually led to Brahms being introduced to Schumann and Liszt.

With the exception of opera, Brahms wrote magnificently for every form of composition. He even wrote close to two hundred songs.

An Amazing Brahms Fact

Even an amazing composer like Brahms had setbacks. His first piano concerto was not well received at its Leipzig premiere in 1859.
