The great master of the symphonic and sonata form in the second half of the 19th century was Johannes Brahms. He can be perceived as the protagonist of Joseph Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven's Classical tradition. The legendary German composer and music theorist Robert Schumann was introduced to Brahms in 1853. The two men soon became friendly, with Schumann seeing much promise for the future of music in his younger friend. He found Brahms a visionary and, in a popular post, publicly celebrated the "young eagle." The kind words soon rendered the young composer a recognized entity in the world of music.
Brahms composed many chamber music works during his final decade, collaborating with clarinetist Richard Muhlfeld on a collection of songs like "Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano," as well as "Quintet for Clarinet and Strings." For the artist, these later years found him live a happy existence. His music had sold well since 1860, and Brahms led a modest lifestyle in his modest flat, far from flamboyant or extravagant. Brahms, a shrewd trader, performed well in the capital market. However, his fortune was surpassed by his kindness, as Brahms also provided money to friends and young learners of music.
