    • Seconded. Schwabing is a great district in Munich, she captures its essence well and the atmosphere of the Hochschule building, it’s quite a place ( for all the right and wrong reasons!).

    • Brahms as whorehouse pianist: A legend disproved several decades back by a closer look at the demographics and laws of the time, which keeps on surfacing.
