About this course:

Johannes Brahms is revered as one of the great composers of classical music. Often described as one of the “three B’s” that includes Bach and Beethoven, Brahms understood himself as continuing an important musical legacy. Through Brahms, a rich German tradition of chamber music and lieder continue to develop, and he is perceived as spearheading a new generation of symphonic composers after him such as Bruckner, Mahler, etc. In this course, we explore how Brahms forged a style that explored inventive new melodies, rhythms, and harmonies while also maintaining an interest in upholding older, more classical forms. This interest in the past would match his involvement in the burgeoning musicological endeavors at the end of the nineteenth century. Our discussion includes the musical works of Brahms’s lieder, keyboard pieces, vocal repertoire, chamber music, and symphonies. This course will be recorded. Students will have access to videos for the duration of the course.
