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.
It's not well accepted that Brahms was a talented cellist when he was younger. Published in the early 1860s, his E minor Cello Sonata was the first of his sonatas for piano and another instrument to escape his vital judgment; he had already created and lost many violin sonatas. More than two decades back, he wrote the F major Cello Sonata, as well as the last two violin sonatas and the C minor Piano Trio. Both sonatas' cello sections reveal his thorough knowledge of the instrument, and his piano parts, of course, represent his own distinct performing style.
