Johannes Brahms was a German composer of the Romantic era. He was the great master of symphonic and sonata whose works display an ever-control of movement and focus. Born into a low-income family, Brahms supported himself by performing at different bars. Through that, he was able to learn more about music. At age 14, Brahms had his first solo public performance as a pianist. He also earned a living by playing at dance halls and taverns.
Brahms' early compositions were chamber works, concertos, piano music, and choral works. He started writing symphonies in 1857 when he worked as a master of music for the Prince of Lippe-Detmold. Before he died of liver cancer, Brahms was given an honorary degree by Cambridge University.
