THE STORY OF BRAHMS(1833-1897)
DID YOU KNOW. . .
Brahms is the third of the famous "Three Bs of Music." (Do you know the other two?)
Brahms was so critical that he destroyed at least twice the number of pieces he published.
Playing with lead soldiers was one of his favorite pastimes.
When a critic pointed out a resemblance between one of his symphonic themes and one by Beethoven, he remarked, "any idiot can see that."
Narrated by Arthur Hannes
