I believe it's Janos Starker, who was principal cello of the CSO at the time
of the recording. Now he's a cello professor at Indiana University.

It's not Starker. He left the orchestra in 1958. And he's now dead. The cellist in question was Robert LaMarchina. You can read about him at . He had a giant talent but serious personal problems and wound up on the musical sidelines and dying a lonely death. He's credited on some of the reissues of the recording.

Mr. Starker is still very much alive, well, and active in Bloomington, Indiana at the time of this posting - July 2008.

The first and third answers are indeed correct. Mr. Starker played on the record in his last season with Chicago. And he is still alive at the time of this posting - September 2009. Robert Lamarchina, who however has died, played the solos when the orchestra recorded the concerto just a couple of years later, with Svjatoslav Richter, during the 1960-61 season. The conductor of that session, Richter's debut on American records, was Erich Leinsdorf, stepping in for an ailing Fritz Reiner.

Brahms's violin concerto was written by Brahms. The clue is in its name: the 'Brahms' violin concerto.

Brahms violin concerto was written in D Major. Johannes Brahms composed this piece in 1878 and was dedicated to this friend Joseph Joachim who played the violin.

If you're referring to the Sony recording he made of it....I believe it's 10/25/1967.

Brahms completed four symphonies.

There are many places where one can listen to Brahms Symphony 3. Website that this symphony can be streamed from include Youtube and the Internet Archives website.

I've never heard any of Brahms' symphonies referred to as "the Bells". However, Rachmaninoff did compose a choral symphony called "The Bells". Perhaps that is what you are thinking of.

You can watch Brahms Symphony 4 online at Amazon, Arkivmusic, Youtube and SFS Symphony. Youtube is one of the best places to watch almost every video imaginable.

Johannes Brahms composed four concerti: two piano concerti, a violin concerto and a double concerto for violin, cello and orchestra. (The word "concerto" is traditionally defined as singular; whereas the plural form of the term is "concerti".)

That depends on the recording

I think it's Brahms' Symphony (in F # minor?), Poco Allegetto

It is Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 3 in F major, Op 90; III. Poco Allegretto

Aimez vous Brahms? by Anatole LitvakFactotum (2005) by Bent Hamer, with Movement 3 Poco allegretto (C minor)L'art d'aimer (2011) [Soundtrack] (writer: "Symphony No. 3, Op. 90")

A few names of works by Brahms are Themes and Variations in D, 7 Fantasies op.116, Trio for Horn, and Symphony no.3.

Brahms symphony no. 1, composed by Dvorak, is considered Beethoven's 10th. Beethoven's 10th doesn't ACTUALLY exist. This is just what the people labeled the symphony, as it sounds like something Beethoven would have composed.

I'd say his Hungarian Dances are probably the most famous, but the violin concerto is up there too.

Raymond Knapp has written: 'Brahms and the challenge of the symphony' -- subject(s): Symphony 'The Oxford handbook of the American musical' -- subject(s): History and criticism, Musicals

Bach- Concerto in E major Mendelssohn- Violin concerto in E minor mvt 1 or 3 Tchaikovsky- Violin concerto in D major mvt 1 or 3 Brahms- Violin Concerto in D major Beethoven- Violin concerto in D major Wieniawski- Scherzo-tarentella Beethoven- Romance in F or G major Much more than these

There are many popular concertos, Like Beethoven's D Major, Tchaikovsky's D Major and Brahms D Major.

Brahms was a pinnacle composer of the Romantic era. His four symphonies are considered masterpieces and standards in orchestral literature, as well as both his piano concerti, violin concerto, double concerto for Violin and Cello, and the Tragic and Academic Festival overtures. He also composed a number of chamber works for various instrumentations; most if not all are still frequently programed. Brahms was also a significant composer of lieder, composing over 200 songs. Suffice it to say, Brahms was a monumental composer who's music is still frequently programed all over the world.

No one has officially written Beethoven's tenth. However, Brahms' first Symphony is sometimes considered a successor to Beethoven and is given the title of Beetoven's tenth. Alternatively, Barry Cooper has assembled sketches of a hypothetical 10th symphony in E flat major. However, there is no way of knowing that all of the sketches were intended for this symphony.

according to Wilhelm Altmann, Piano Concerto no. 2 Op. 83 dedicated to his dear friend and teacher Edward Marxsen.Other sources as well say Schumann.
