Part Two: Brahms and the Medieval
From his teenage years, Brahms was drawn to the romance of the medieval past, a glorified period of Germany’s history, replete with castles, princesses, and knights. This talk explores that lifelong fascination, which was expressed through his love of early choral repertoire, his choice of song texts, and the books in his private library. It will be illustrated by performances by James Atkinson and Ana Manastireanu from the Royal College of Music.
