Johannes Brahms - Academic Festival Overture (1880) Brahms - Symphony No.1, op.68, C minor (1855–1876) This all-Brahms program gives the listener two distinct views into Brahms. In Academic Festival Overture we see Brahms the joker; after accepting an honorary doctorate from the University of Breslau, Brahms was required to write a piece as a thank you to the University. To fulfill his obligation, he wrote Academic Festival Overture, which used collegiate drinking songs as musical materials. Brahms’s first symphony is a more serious work. After Robert Schumann wrote that Brahms would continue “Beethoven’s inheritance,” Brahms developed a complex about writing his first

symphony. The work took him 21 years to write, and in it, we see Brahms balance an homage to Beethoven with his own compositional style.
