Composer Study: Brahms

The upcoming Composer Study on the AO rotation for fall is Brahms.

As far as I can remember, I know next to nothing about him, so I am looking forward to reading, listening and learning along with my kids this term. Here's the information I've gathered so far. I'll plan to do composer study much the same way we always have.

In the old days, I used to try to help y'all out by linking to youtube vids and making printables and such, but now there are mama's way quicker than I am. I'm so thankful for AO users over at the forum... they were a HUGE help by doing all the work this time around! See helpful links.

One generous AO user put a Brahms youtube playlist together for us! Thank you Islavet!
And another helpful AO user made a pdf with short bios of all this year's composers, from Harriet Brower's book, The World's Great Men of Music: Story-Lives of Master Musicians. Thanks Keac!
