||This program from the Famous Composers series offers an overview of the life and work of composer and pianist Johannes Brahms beginning with an introduction to Brahms' family and hometown, the nineteenth century seaport city of Hamburg. The film follows Brahms' musical education with teachers Otto Cossel and Eduard Marxsen, his days of playing in bars and teaching to earn money, and his eventual move to the musical capital of Vienna. The film characterizes the composer as a strict perfectionist and discusses Brahms' relationship with his closest friends and professional supporters, Robert and Clara Schumann. Brahms enjoyed much success in conducting and performing, and his art always took precedent over his personal relationships and even his professional posts.
