I heard this piece today at a concert. The horn player tells us that Brahms wrote this for his mother. Please recall that I am a Brahmsie.
The scherzo is especially cool.
This is for my son the horn player.
This was played on a concert with the Capitol Chamber Players by I-Hui Chem, piano, Pete Nowlen, French horn, and Robert Bloch, violin.
