Johannes Brahms stood for seriousness and tradition, and valued the legacy of his predecessors; and yet the shadow of Beethoven weighed heavily on the shoulders of the young Brahms. It took years of preparation and hesitation before he overcame his uncertainty and let the world hear his First Symphony. The influence of his illustrious predecessor can be heard very clearly – and that was his intention, for Brahms resolutely opted to render homage. But with this symphony he also emerged definitively from the shadow of ‘his giant’.
