The Deeper Side of Brahms

Inside Music: Johannes Brahms Symphony No.3 in F Major, Op.90, The Deeper Side of Brahms

Perhaps as well as any composer and frankly better than most, Johannes Brahms was able to convey the feeling of loss… the death of a close friend, an irretrievable loss of love. 

Whatever our loss might be, we sense through his music that Brahms understands – that he has experienced this, too. It can be cathartic to share our loss with another person, even with a person long since departed, like Brahms. 

Maestro Maull helps us discover how Brahms achieves this in the 3rd movement of his 3rd Symphony.
