Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)

Posted by Administrator on 10/4/2012 to Homeschooling
He was a composer who had to practice the piano at a piano manufacturer’s showroom because his family was too poor to afford an instrument of their own. He was raised in a Protestant home and was very familiar with the Bible, studying the Scriptures into his adulthood. And his friendship with composer and musicians Robert and Clara Schumann started when he was only twenty years old, but continued until Clara’s death less than one year before his own passing. He even stayed with Clara’s seven children so she could resume her career as a concert pianist and support her family after Robert’s death. Moreover, he is a composer who has the rare distinction of having his own lullaby named after him. Who is this shy bachelor who composed over 250 works? Johannes Brahms.
