Details of Brahm's Symphony and the Ticket Luck value
A member of the “Three B's,” a world class composer, and a musician who was considered as the most legitimate successor to Beethoven, Brahms was a German musician who excelled as a pianist and composer. Born in 1833, Johannes Brahms was introduced to music by his father. He started training from the age of seven and never looked back. During his career, he was greatly influenced by Beethoven and the influence is apparent in the similarities that are often noted between Beethoven's and Brahms's work.
While Brahms's genius can be found in numerous compositions such as Serenades, Organ Concertos and Chamber Compositions among others, it is his symphonies that have given him massive fame, and have allowed him to remain relevant, even today. Brahms's music is noted for its timelessness, its heavy indulgence and most of all, its aesthetic appeal. Brahms composed a total of four symphonies, and today, these four symphonies have become the epitome of the Romantic Movement in music. Brahms is part of the German musical school, which is also referred to as the Leipzig musical tradition. Other musicians such as Bach and Schumann are also part of the Leipzig school of classical music.
The first symphony opens with a flourish as it consequently climaxes to a sudden drop. The complete enchantment that the first movement in the symphony casts over the listeners rivets them throughout the piece as it builds to a crescendo again and again. Maintaining the rhythm of the symphony, and keeping the harmonic integrity of the symphony intact, Brahms uses his instruments as the perfect medium for inspiring emotions in his audience. The symphony is agitated throughout and the dramatic value that is incorporated in the composition gives the symphony an air of urgency, of passion and of an animation that very few musical compositions have.
Parallels are often drawn between this symphony and between Beethoven's orchestral compositions. It seems that Brahms has borrowed thematic influence from Beethoven. However, despite the similar movements, Brahms adds a unique touch to his work that is now applauded as nothing less than genius.
The second symphony opens slowly, but exudes a regal charm. Released a year after the first symphony, this compositional masterpiece is easy to grasp, beautiful in its movements and uniquely transcendent. Even those who are not well versed in the specific language of musical theory can sway along to this piece of exquisite music. Many have applauded Brahms on his use of the most complex of musical arrangements in producing a sound that is light, captivating and a joy for all.
The third symphony is perhaps the most underrated symphony of Brahms. The movements are organic and the rise and fall of the music is as natural as it could be. Brahms compositional mastery is evident in the piece as he takes the symphony from an edgy beginning to a calm and relaxed middle and then builds up to a climax in the end. He manages to change the key in the end without the transition harming the tranquility of the composition or upsetting its coherence as one symphony. The third symphony has an undeniable allure that gives it a magnificent feeling and more than critics, fans of good music have appreciated the overall aura of the symphony.
The fourth and final symphony of Brahms is a composition extraordinaire. The piece starts off mellow and largely relaxed. In an instant, a change of movement in the symphony creates a majestic uproar and the music becomes bold. It is to Brahms merit that he handles such a drastic change in such a fluent manner that the sudden climax of the music throughout the symphony becomes an innate part of the flow. No where during the symphony does the rise or falls seem forced or miscalculated.
Brahms is one of the most accomplished composers of all time. His self-criticism and his need to be perfect in his work made him produce some of the most unique yet pleasurable pieces of classical music. Hans von Bulow, who stands as one of the most accomplished conductors from the nineteenth century, stated that “the three greatest composers are Bach, Beethoven and Brahms. All the others are cretins.” Brahms genius was celebrated in his life, and today, he lives on through his repertory as his work is still performed all over the world.
