Johannes Brahms was born in Hamburg in 1833.

Brahms creatively synthesized the practices of three centuries with folk and dance idioms and with the language of mid- and late nineteenth-century art music. His works of controlled passion, deemed reactionary by some, progressive by others, became well accepted in his lifetime.

He left us just one piano quintet, a youthful work:

Piano Quintet in F minor, opus 34 (1861). There are four movements:

I. Allegro non troppo
II. Andante, un poco Adagio
III. Scherzo. Allegro - Trio
IV. Finale. Poco sostenuto - Allegro non troppo

It was played by Christoph Eschenbach (piano), with the Amadeus Quartet.
