Classical Journey 1st February

Johannes Brahms 1833-97
Every Thursday for the next three weeks we will be able to hear a series of lectures by Christopher Redwood about the chamber music of Johannes Brahms.  We can hear the lectures (and music) in the Music Room at Exeter Central Library from 11.00-12.30am on the 3rd, 10th, and 17th of February.  Christopher will join the Classical Journey at around 11am on Tuesday to listen to the music of Brahms and to talk about Brahms, his music, and the forthcoming series of lectures.
