Johannes Brahms. Look, I get it. The guy is hot. He’s super talented. But this man was a dick. Probably due to his kind of awful childhood, but still. A total asshole. Even though he preferred the company of prostitutes in his bed, and had a nasty habit of making fun of women composers, there was one person who he loved more than anything in the world.. Clara Schumann. I mean, she was beautiful,talented, unavailable, and 17 years his senior. How could he resist.
Music Historians are divided as to whether Clara and Johannes ever got together. Tune in to this episode to find out what we think (OMG they TOTALLY DID)!
