According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Johannes Brahms was a German composer, also pianist. Born in Hamburg, where as a youngster he played in sailors' taverns; pupil of Marxsen. In 1953 met Joachim, Liszt, Robert Schumann, and others who became interested in him; visited Vienna in 1862, settled there in 1863 (also died there). Never married. Entirely devoted to composition from 1864, but did not write the first of his four symphonies till 1975. Composed no opera and did not follow widely Lisztian ideal of programme music but developed the forms of Ludwig van Beethoven's period and showed notable rhythmic originality. Works include 2 piano concertos, violin concerto, double concerto (violin and cello); overtures etc.
