During his long and productive life, Johannes Brahms (1833-97) interacted with most of the significant musicians and artists of 19th century.
Join Susan Waterfall and an array of exceptional Festival musicians for four days of lectures and narrated concerts about Johannes Brahms’ life and music.
“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
