An Evening with Brahms (2.5 hours)

6:00 pm - 8:30 pm Friday 14 June 2024
Face-to-face, WEA Sydney, 72 Bathurst St Sydney NSW 2000

From his beginnings as a tavern piano player to his final appearance receiving ovations after every piece, Brahms was a man of contrasts. Never marrying but loving Clara Schumann all his life, writing in the late Romantic period but influenced by Classical composers, the unique beauty of his music can be grand and stirring, intimate and expressive, or bold and vibrant. Join us to spend an evening exploring the life and music of this great composer.
