Composer of the Month - Brahms

For February, may I suggest the wonderful music of Johannes Brahms?

Brahms is one of the Romantic giants - one of the three great B's (Bach, Beethoven and Brahms). Since February is such a "romantic" month, I thought it fitting to fall in love with some beautiful romantic music (1800-1910).

Suggested Listening:
  • Hungarian Dances
  • Academic Festival Overture
  • Violin Sonatas
  • Brahms Lullaby or Cradle Song
  • Symphony No. 4 (I walked down the aisle at our wedding to the theme from the 4th movement)
