Description

Brahms never attended college but was flattered by an honorary degree from the University of Breslau. His Academic Festival Overture was a light-hearted response (incorporating well-known student drinking songs) to the school’s shameless request for a musical “thank-you.” Gabriel Fauré worked as a church musician for 40 years, but viewed his work as a means to a paycheck rather than a spiritual calling. “My Requiem was composed for fun - I wanted something different."
