Иога́ннес Брамс — немецкий композитор и пианист, один из главных представителей периода романтизма.



„Симфония после Гайдна уже не шутка, а дело жизни и смерти.“

„Сочинять не так уж трудно; зачеркивать лишние ноты – вот что труднее всего.“


„Писать музыку не так уж трудно, труднее всего — зачёркивать лишние ноты.“

„If there is anyone here whom I have not insulted, I beg his pardon.“

„The idea comes to me from outside of me - and is like a gift. I then take the idea and make it my own - that is where the skill lies.“

„Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind.“

„The only true immortality lies in one's children.

Johannes Brahms: Life and Letters

„Leave off driving your composers. It might prove to be as dangerous as it is generally unnecessary. After all, composing cannot be turned out like spinning or sewing. Some respected colleagues (Bach, Mozart, Schubert) have spoilt the world terribly. But if we can’t imitate them in the beauty of their writing, we should certainly beware of seeking to match the speed of their writing. It would also be unjust to put all the blame on idleness alone. Many factors combine to make writing harder for us (my contemporaries), and especially me. If, incidentally, they would use us poets for some other purpose, they would see that we are thoroughly and naturally industrious dispositions.... I have no time: otherwise I should love to chat on the difficulty of composing and how irresponsible publishers are.“ Johannes Brahms: Life and Letters
