Help! Wanting to write a blog about Brahms as he's my favourite composer and fascinated about his life! Any suggestions on what to include? Thank you.

Dear Judith,

An essay on Brahms has to include something about his relationship with the Schumanns: Robert and Clara. I think there is an entire soap opera there. Also you could touch upon his late blooming in composing his First Symphony and his reworking of his First Piano Concerto from a symphony to a piano concerto. Just some thoughts to help you out.

I am fascinated by that. As mentioned before, I think there may have been more behind closed doors!

Just spent today discussing Brahms "love life" on twitter! As mentioned above, wonder if there was anything more behind closed doors with Clara Schumann. What does anyone on CMM think? Was there something that we don't know about?

It is anyone's guess but Brahms was very close to Clara especially when Robert was in a sanitarium

Well. Just finished. Sent it to two people for proof reading. Focused mainly on what I call "Schumanngate" as that fascinates me most. Once approved and published, is there anyway I can get it to this site so that my CMM friends can read it?

You can put the link in this thread! Also if you wish you could create a topic for the link in the 'Useful Web Links' forum.

Is it a website blog or some other format?
