Brahms is one of the best loved yet most controversial of all the Romantics. Almost uniquely, his works have never suffered the slightest period of eclipse. Profoundly emotional yet governed by an iron discipline, the music, like the man, is a fascinating, entertaining, often deeply moving blend of opposites. He had a gift for friendship and a capacity for love far beyond the ordinary, yet no man could be ruder or more hurtful. Though humble, he was consumed by a sense of destiny, and his inner life, colored by his adoration and fear of women, found expression in some of the greatest music ever written.
Listening to this audio-biography is leaping inside the life and times of a great German Romantic, understanding the man who was haunted by the ghost of Beethoven for years and was 43 before he wrote his first symphony.

What a delight! The combination of life story , musical interludes and the extracts from letters etc read by actors makes this a very engaging and informative introduction to the life and works of the composer . I enjoyed it very much and the format held my attention and interest throughout.

Fine study of Brahms' life & work
I love Brahms but knew little about his life. This filled the gap very well.
