Johannes Brahms

german concerto major romantic

Brahms, Johannes (1833–97), major German Romantic composer. Though strongly influenced by Beethoven and the Romantic movement, he developed his own rhythmic originality and emotional intensity, while using classical forms. He lived largely in Vienna from 1863. His major works include four symphonies, two piano concertos, a violin concerto, a double concerto for violin and cello, piano and chamber works, songs, part-songs, and choral works—notably, A German Requiem (1868) and the Alto Rhapsody (1869).
