Brahms, Johannes

Johannes Brahms was a Romantic-era German composer and pianist who was something of a Classical tradition follower. He composed in a variety of styles, including symphonies, concerti, chamber music, piano works, and choral works, several of which show folk music influence. Joseph Joachim, a violin virtuoso who befriended Johannes Brahms in 1853, immediately recognized Brahms' ability and suggested him to composer Robert Schumann. In the periodical Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, Schumann lauded Brahms' compositions. The article caused quite a stir. Brahms was a power in the field of music from that point on. Academic Festival Overture and German Requiem are two of his most well-known works.
