Okay for the next piece in our ongoing Tuesday Rhapsodies segment, Brahms’ Rhapsodies, Op. 79. I really should get into Brahms more. I mean I know just how experimental he was, how much of a personality he was… he had a biography in a “Lives of the Composers” set of records I listened to growing up, so I know a lot of the juicy details, like the love triangle with him and the Schuman’s. Heck, I’ve heard some great family stories about my great-grandmother remembering seeing people walking out of a Brahms concert in disgust, which should be endorsement aplenty.

However in my Classical Music listening choices I’ve never really gotten much farther than listening to his lullaby.

With any luck this piece will be the first step in correcting that mistake.
