[125] Johannes Brahms - Violin Sonatas, Opp. 78, 100, 108

Beethoven's "Eroica," Symphony #3 in E flat Major, Opus 55, 1803 - 1804

If I recall correctly, the tale goes somewhat like this:

Beethoven was chatting with his comrades in his home when one of the other men informs the maestro that Napoleon Bonaparte has just crowned himself Emperor of France.   1,239 more words

[123] Johannes Brahms - Sonatas for Cello & Piano, Opp. 38, 99, 108

This may have been exactly what I needed right now.

In the midst of a hectic and at times overwhelming summer, these contemplative and compassionate tones are literally music to my ears.  186 more words
