Quote from: Que on April 08, 2007, 11:42:42 AMIf you can get hold of this set with all the vocal ensembles, you'll reap the considerable rewards! (Includes also the Liebeslieder-Walzer issue that was pictured in an earlier post)Q
Quote from: Mozart on April 09, 2007, 09:45:26 PMI havent heard Brahms d min pc in months...like half a year and today I went to my Brahms folder and heard it. Shortly later it was on the radio! How weird is that?
Quote from: DetUudslukkelige on April 08, 2007, 11:06:36 AMIt's interesting that people don't see Brahms as a lied composer, considering he wrote what is one of the most famous Lieder of all (I speak, of course, of his famous Wiegenlied/Brahms' Lullaby).
Quote from: D Minor on April 07, 2007, 03:23:22 AMJohannes Brahms (May 7, 1833 - Apr. 1897)For me, Brahms is a "soul mate" composer. Much (but not all) of his music touches me very deeply on every level: spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and even physically. His greatest works not only withstand repeated listening, but they acquire a greater, deeper significance over time. For links to Brahms Bios, Click Here For a GMG Brahms Bio Thread, Click HereCurrently, my dozen favorite works are, (roughly in order):1. Piano Concerto no. 1 in d minor (op 15)2. Symphony no. 43. Piano Concerto no. 2 in b flat (op 73)4. Requiem5. Violin Concerto6. Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel (op 24)7. Symphony no. 38. Symphony no. 19. Paganini Variations10. Piano Quartet op. 25 (and as orch. by Schoenberg)11. Clarinet Quintet12. Symphony no. 2The list of other masterpieces is considerable, including (this list is a work-in-progress): -- Double Concerto -- Symphony no. 2 -- Haydn Variations -- Overtures (Tragic / Academic Festival) -- Late Piano Pieces -- Sonatas for Piano 1/2/3 -- Variations (on original theme; on a theme by Schumann) -- Alto Rhapsody -- Triumphlied -- Lieder -- Sonatas for Violin -- Sonatas for Cello -- Sonata for Clarinet -- String Quartets -- Piano Quartets -- Piano Quintet -- Trios (horn trio) -- Motets -- Organ Works -- SerenadesJohannes Brahms Links Grove Dictionary of Music List of Works johannesbrahms.org American Brahms Society Classical Music Archives Classical.net Brahms Museum Links to Biographies of Brahms

Quote from: hornteacher on April 07, 2007, 08:18:11 AMOkay I'm going to fly my "geek flag" here but the Brahms Sextet was used in a Next Generation episode called "Sarek" in which the Vulcan cries at a ship concert. There are two excerpts during the scene, one from the 1st mvt of Mozart's Dissonance SQ, and the other from the 2nd mvt of the Brahms. Its a rather good scene and it actually has no dialogue for about two minutes while the music is playing.
Quote from: DavidW on April 24, 2007, 05:59:33 PMI remember that. Darned senile vulcan! Didn't he mind meld with Picard at the end of that episode? I don't remember the Brahms from that scene, but I do remember the Mozart.
Quote from: hornteacher on April 24, 2007, 06:15:35 PMYep, that's the one. The Brahms is what actually is playing durng the "tear". Interestingly, even though its a string SEXTET there are still only FOUR people playing!
Quote from: DavidW on April 24, 2007, 06:23:33 PMWas Data one of the four, because he could play for three?
