in 1998, my friend maeve recommended i listen to brahms violin concerto. i bought it on cassette and on the b-side, was mendelssohn's... i fell in love about six times over as i listened to the mendelssohn and the brahms piece kind of fell by the wayside... it's only this evening, 13 years later, listening to a new version that i just got of the brahms on my fancy headphones, that i get it - it is a truly powerful piece of music!

my friend jonathan recently showed me an analytical animation of brahms piano quartet - the animation was interesting, but the music... between this peice of music that i now talk of and the one i'm listening to - i think brahms is about to become my new obsession!!!
