I adore Brahms, and if I had the cash I’d be on a plane out to Detroit right now!
Thanks to Rich Brown of Good Music Speaks for turning us on to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s ongoing celebration of Brahm’s life & works. They’re doing all four symphonies, a Berio arrangement of Brahm’s Sonata for Clarinet and Orchestra (I had no idea that existed!), and even a beard contest. But trust me – that’ll be a tough one.
There’s even a beard competition, but trust me – it’s gonna be a tough one.

Ah Brahms…such a solace. That last (fourth) Ballade for piano in B…and a couple of the symphony movement…the 2nd mvt. of #2 and the 3rd mvt. of #3…and the whole 4th Symphony. That’s very interesting about Berio. I quite enjoy his work too.
