There’s a lot going on here, so follow closely: it’s Brahms’ 190th birthday today and we’re celebrating with New York City icon, musical theatre composer and pianist Jimmy Roberts. Why, you might ask? Well, it is a little known fact that the ever-serious Brahms idolized the music of Johann Strauss - in fact, when Strauss’s wife asked Brahms to autograph her fan, he wrote the first few notes of the “Blue Danube” waltz, and then wrote “Unfortunately not by Johannes Brahms!” underneath. From operettas to musicals is just a short hop, skip and jump – even quicker on a plane – and we’d love to have you join us in the celebrations that will take us around the world, with music from the golden age of New York’s musicals, to Brahms’ Vienna.
