While completing the Op. 121 songs Brahms fell ill of cancer (sources differ on whether this was of the liver or pancreas). His condition gradually worsened and he died on April 3, 1897. Brahms is buried in the Zentralfriedhof in Vienna.


Brahms loved to do good deeds in secret, such as sending money to struggling musicians. He was one of the few composers to be appreciated while he was still alive. Long walks inspired the outdoor-loving Brahms. As a thoughtful man, Brahms once, while at an inn, walked around in his stockings so that he wouldn't dirty his boots which a servant would then have to clean. He didn't stress over being original because he thought that the creation was just as important as the perfecter (or worker) of the creation. After his mother's death, one of Brahms friends found him "getting it all out." He was crying while playing the piano, playing specifically Goldberg Variations.




He became more famous after his death than while he was alive.


Famous enough for the Grand-Duke of Tuscany and the Pope to employ him.


Brahms was born in 1833, so when he was 57 that would be the year 1890. In 1896 (when he was 63), he wrote Four Serious Songs. So no, he did not stop composing at age 57. Although he slowed his compositional output and chose to help Clara Schumann take care of her family while Robert Schumann was placed in an asylum.


No, he only sold one painting which was to a friend of his.


There is no single piece of music by Brahms that is more 'famous' than any other. This type of question is impossible to answer. Some pieces of music may be best known in certain countries, while other pieces will be better known in other countries. Some music becomes famous through live performances, some through recordings, some through being used in TV advertisements, and so on. Some music is well known to professional musicians but not to the general public - and vice versa. There are so many variables that there is really no point in asking the question. A more sensible question would be 'what are some of Brahms's most famous pieces of music?', and answers to that are already available on this site.
