Editorial Reviews

Brahms was one of the seminal music figures of the 19th century. He composed symphonies, concertos, and many songs, piano pieces, and chamber works. Opera is the only major musical medium in which he did not write. More than any other composer of the second half of the 19th century, Brahms was responsible for reviving what is termed "absolute" music. This describes compositions which were to be accepted on their own terms as interplays of sound rather than as works that depict a scene or tell a story. Brahms was a master of composition. He often used established techniques, but with such novel and refreshing approaches that the listener first perceives the beauty and strength of the music, and only later becomes aware of the composer’s technical mastery. Throughout his entire life Brahms was looked upon as the successor to Beethoven in the evolution of German Romanticism and struggled to meet these expectations.

This, unfortunately, is the least interesting account of a composer in the otherwise great series by Kultur-BBC. Unlike the other items in the series, there are no interviews, discussions with contemporary musicians, musicologists, or conductors. The DVD is more like an entry in an encyclopedia, read by a narrator. There are some photographs but no live discussions. This is unfair to one of the greatest composers ever lived.

I am sure the producers can do a better job introducing that brilliant composer, and they should do justice to him and his lovers because their other productions have so far being very successful. Also, there was an error in Brhms's date of birth that needs correction.
