Johannes Brahms by Jeremy Siepmann( Recording )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Profoundly emotional yet governed by an iron discipline, the music, like the man, is a fascinating, entertaining, often deeply moving blend of opposites. He had a gift for friendship and a capacity for love far beyond the ordinary, yet no man could be ruder or more hurtful. 136-page booklet included
