I recently finished a Website to provide all available Data about Life Works and Recordings of Robert Kahn (1865-1951).

Robert Kahn composed mainly Songs, Vocal music, Chambermusic and Pianomusic. He could be regarded as one of the very few students of Johannes Brahms and as far as I know he was the only one whom Brahms invited himself to study  personally with  Brahms in Vienna. He was later Professor at the Berlin Musikhochschule and succesful Chambermusician performing with many prominent Musicians from Joseph Joachim up to Adolf Busch.

After a long and succesful musical Life in Berlin he was forced by the Nazis to leave germany 1939 with more than 70 Years and moved to Biddenden in Kent not far away from Laurence_Alma-Tadema who he already knew from Berlin.

In his last Years in Germany and in his British exil he composed from 1935-1949 his "Diary in Music" sometimes also called "Leaves from the Tree of Life" with altogether nearly 1200 Pianopieces rooted meanwhile not stuck in the late romantic classical tradition of Brahms but with some intelligent curiosity experimenting for himself how this tradition could be reasonable developed to become his own concept of a music for the 20th century.

Today namely his Chambermusic seem to be rediscovered more and more.
