Let’s Get Serious

Inside Music: Let's Get Serious or How Brahms makes us lose rhythmic balance

Johannes Brahms’s ability to distort our sense of rhythm is always lying in wait.  Turn the corner… and we suddenly lose our rhythmic balance, and Maestro Maull is certain that Brahms enjoyed every minute of doing this to us. The Scherzo from his Quintet for Piano and Strings provides ample ammunition to support this assertion, and yet maintain its serious mood.

INSIDE MUSIC with George Marriner Maull on WWFM The Classical Network is made possible by Glenmede Trust Company, an independent investment and wealth management firm, with 8 locations including offices in Princeton, Morristown and Philadelphia. 

Additional sponsorship of Inside Music has been provided by Alfonso and Diana Finocchiaro.
