    45 - Johannes Brahms, pt. 10 "From the Soul of the Purest Youth" a classical music podcast

    45 - Johannes Brahms, pt. 10 "From the Soul of the Purest Youth" a classical music podcast

    It is December 1871 and Johannes Brahms has finally established permanent residence in the music loving city of Vienna. Still, his thoughts remain in Hamburg for a time as his family slowly start to drift away from him...
    He himself then drifted for a time, compositionally at least. He would begin his new position as Artistic Director of the Gesellschaft der Musik Freunde in Fall 1872 which made him so busy he hardly had time to compose. Except during the summers, when he would disappear from their sight, as it were, and work on his music. And what incredible music it would be: two string quartets, the Haydn Variations, the third piano quartet, plenty of music for the voice, and very nearly a first symphony. 
    Works heard in this episode (all by Brahms):
    - String Quartet in C minor op. 51, no. 1
    1. Allegro
    2. Romanze: Poco adagio
    3. Allegretto molto moderato e comodo
    4. Allegro
    - Variations on a Theme (Said to be) by Joseph Haydn, op. 56a
    Theme
    Var. 1-3
    Var. 4-6
    Var. 7, 8
    Finale

    43 - Johannes Brahms pt. 9 "A Lovely Dwelling Place" - Classical Music Podcast

    43 - Johannes Brahms pt. 9 "A Lovely Dwelling Place" - Classical Music Podcast

    Ep. 43 – It is Good Friday, April 10, 1868 in Bremen and Brahms has just finished giving the premiere of his German Requiem. It is a complete triumph but one not celebrated with wild applause, the work is too grave for that. Instead, attendees of the premiere listened with glad hearts and in reverence, awe really of the work’s creator. Thus, Johannes Brahms became an internationally recognized composer of considerable importance and some measure of celebrity.
    Works heard in this episode (all by Brahms):
    -Requiem
    mvt. 4 "How Lovely is They Dwelling Place"
    mvt. 5 "And Ye Now are Sorrowful" 
    -Wiegenlied op. 49 no. 4
    -Botschaft op. 47 no. 1
    -Hungarian dance 1-10

    42b - Johannes Brahms pt. 8 "The Scent of Lilac" - Classical Music Podcast

    42b - Johannes Brahms pt. 8 "The Scent of Lilac" - Classical Music Podcast

    Ep 42(b) - It is early 1865. Brahms's mother has just passed away. Filled with emotion he grudgingly moves from winter to spring, entering a long period of deep and private mourning during which he would retreat into himself for a time in order to gather his thoughts and energies, and orient them toward a grand act of artistic creation in which he would immortalize his beloved mother and through which his artist soul would be elevated and ennobled and made pure.

    42a - Johannes Brahms pt. 8 "The Scent of Lilac" - Classical Music Podcast

    42a - Johannes Brahms pt. 8 "The Scent of Lilac" - Classical Music Podcast

    Ep. 42(a) - It is late November 1862. We find Johannes Brahms in Vienna making a great success of himself for once but reeling from a devastating blow given him by the musical establishment of Hamburg. He will try to pick himself up and carry on with his work, compartmentalizing the tenderness he felt for one place from the bitterness for the other so that he might do so. And then further troubles to deal with: family strife and division that will make his life more difficult than ever; a loss that will wrench his heart and cause him the greatest pain, one for which tears aplenty would not be an adequate response but rather, music; tones and song in memoriam of a cherished loved one on a grand scale.

    41 - Johannes Brahms, pt. 7 "Vignettes and Vienna" - Classical Music Podcast

    41 - Johannes Brahms, pt. 7 "Vignettes and Vienna" - Classical Music Podcast

    In Ep. 41 Johannes Brahms continues his toil, conducing the ladies' choir, playing concerts, and composing; working to build a life and career brick by brick with the sweat of his brow and the help of his friends. He hoped for a permanent position in Hamburg that would lead to a settled, traditional life and some financial security. Brahms's efforts were geared toward turning hope into reality, but it remained to be seen whether the music masters of Hamburg would smooth his way or block it. If Brahms found a professional and therefore personal dead end in Hamburg where else might he go? Could another city offer him the life he was seeking?
