The Double Concerto in A minor, Op. 102, by Johannes Brahms is a concerto for violin, cello and orchestra. The orchestra consists of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings. The Double Concerto was Brahms' final work for orchestra. It was composed in the summer of 1887, and first performed on 18 October of that year in the Gürzenich in Cologne, Germany.
Brahms’s approach is set in the opening pages of the Piano Concerto No 1 in D minor, Op 15: massive and dramatic, its sound and its juxtaposition of D minor and B flat major echoing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The inspiration of this concerto was tragic and immediate. In September 1853 the twenty-year-old Brahms knocked on the door of Robert and Clara Schumann’s home in Düsseldorf and played them a few of his pieces. When he left, Schumann wrote in his journal: ‘Visit from Brahms (a genius). De son vivant comme après sa mort, Johannes Brahms fit figure de conservateur composant dans des formes et des genres traditionnels comme la symphonie, le quatuor à cordes et le concerto. L’avenir paraissait appartenir à Richard Wagner, à Franz Liszt et à leurs disciples, qui rejetaient les formes anciennes pour créer des œuvres fondées sur la poésie, le théâtre et la littérature.

Un Brahms abordé col ouvert, avec une fougue et un abandon au plaisir de chanter qui font taire toute critique vétilleuse. Vibrato enivrant, flottements harmoniques du piano, la brume brahmsienne se teinte d’intenses rougeoiements. La connivence de ces derniers était pour beaucoup dans leur réussite. Pascal Devoyon joue ici le jeu de romantisme déboutonné en y inscrivant ses propres délicatesses de toucher. Séparées par vingt années de maturation spirituelle et musicale, les deux sonates convergent dans une même exultation sonore.
Johannes Brahms was one of the romantic period's most conflicted musical characters, and his symphonies are the perfect way to find out wh. .The image of Brahms the curmudgeon with his hands firmly behind his back is how most people see this most quietly influential of composers. But particularly in his symphonies, this image is proven to be a complete myth. Few symphonic composers have done so much with so few works, but Brahms four symphonies have lasted through the centuries thanks to their verve, their freedom and their complexity. But it didn't start off quite like tha. ymphony No. 1 in C minor (1876). If any one composer in history was hyped to breaking point, it has to be Brahms. For a variety of reasons, he was seen.
Johannes Brahms (German: ; 7 May 1833 – 3 April 1897) was a German composer and pianist of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg into a Lutheran family, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria.
Johannes Brahms' noble, traditional music matches his stubborn but kind-hearted personality. When Brahms was 20, he went on a carefree summer tour of Northern Germany with the gypsy violinist Eduard Remenyi. On this tour he managed to get introduced to the great composer Robert Schumann, and his wife Clara Schumann, a hugely talented pianist. Brahms worshiped them, and they were very fond of him.
