The Brahms Effect

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

Music’s leading figurehead at the culmination of the Romantic era, Johannes Brahms remains unsurpassed in his emotional range and innovative spirit, both of which laid an inspirational groundwork for a generation of composers to come. One such composer was Hungarian Ern? Dohnányi, whose Sextet in C major owes its formative elements to Brahms. The work will appear alongside two Brahms trios of profound originality.

Brahms | Trio in E-flat major for Horn, Violin, and Piano, Op. 40 (1865)
