Watch: The pianist who became Brahms’s friendmain
Daniel Hope reminded us this week of a video we posted in the early days of Slipped Disc and which had a profound influence on his thoughts about Brahms. By some mishap, the video got lost when we transferred to the present site.
For those who missed it first time round, here’s Ilona Eibenschütz (1872-1967) recalling in immaculate English her studies with Clara Schumann and her close friendship with Brahms.
The next 15 minutes may affect your view of the late 19th century.
