The music of Johannes Brahms occupies one of the central positions in Teutonic music of the nineteenth century. This module will examine representative examples of Brahms' music from both analytical and cultural perspectives and consider his contribution to the genre by examining his relationships with, and/or views on, early music, Wagner, Beethoven, Schubert, the Schumanns, Dvorak, and Hanslick, and how he has been viewed by later composers, most notably Schoenberg.
