Alabama Symphony Orchestra Brahms A German Requiem
Johannes Brahms was born in 1833 in Hamburg. He belonged to a Lutheran family and his father migrated to Hamburg to get a position in the town as a musician. It was Brahms father Johann Jakob who gave him the initial music training at home. By the time he was seven he was getting piano lessons from a seasoned teacher named Friedrich Willibald. During this time Brahms also had a chance to learn cello. Later on he had the privilege of learning with pianists like Ignaz von Seyfried and Carl Maria von Bocklet, these two were students of Mozart and Schubert respectively. Brahms first ever piano concert tour was at the age of nineteen. While still in his teens he was also busy conducting choirs and orchestras.
Brahms was soon cited by acclaimed German music critic and composer Robert Schumann. Soon Brahms was asked by Schumann to join him as Schumann was quite impressed by the talent of this young man. He learned a lot from both Shuman and his wife Clara who herself was a fine pianist and composer. After death of Schumann, Brahms got very busy with music performances across various cities. There was one time when Brahms was giving liver performances across various cities of Germany and Austria. He eventually moved to Vienna and it was in this city that he spend most of his life. He was a true musical genius and was very particular about music theory and composition methods. Brahms adapted his music influence and technique from master composers of the baroqe and classical era. Some critics rank Johannes Brahms among the Three B’s along with John Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven.
