Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897)

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) stayed during the completion of the Niederwalddenkmal at Ruedesheim and composed here his 3-rd symphony (also known as a soundtrack) which is called by some experts the “heroic one”. Maybe the sight of the monument has exercised an influence? All experts are united to themselves in the fact that Brahms has reached a quite special climax of his creating with the 3-rd symphony.

The main topic of the symphony forms a heroic motive which is always animated by triumphant size up to quiet transfiguration from big breath and strong sensation. A softly gliding transition leads the listener on the idyllic second subject. It is possible that here appears an influence of the scenery; because the master loved to walk in the vineyards. He can be inspired with pleasure by the unique man-made landscape.
