Johannes Brahms, the youngest of the five friends, was proclaimed by Schumann in an article titled “New Paths” as the composer who would lead the way into the future of music. Even before, Brahms and violinist/composer Joseph Joachim had “found one another” and their lifelong friendship was in important stimulus for each. Brahms’ piano quintet actually began as a no piano 2 cello quintet. But Clara Schumann said it needed the strength of a piano. After transcribing it for piano 4-hands, Brahms found the perfect solution – strings and piano as we know it today.
