Brahms and the Twilight of Musical Romanticism


This course was available in the past and may be presented again as part of the Open Enrollment curriculum.

This course examines the nostalgic (yet forward-looking) symphonies, piano music, and chamber music in which Brahms, along with his contemporaries, Wolff and Bruckner, created an enduring testimonial to Europe at the zenith of its cultural power. Music literacy is not required.
