CLASSICAL OPUS no.75

Johannes Brahms: “Hungarian Dance, no.5”

ヨハネス・ブラームス:「ハンガリー・ダンス、第5番」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 4 minutes

Jumpy and brightly chromatic, this was Brahms’ classic Viennese piece, almost contemporaneous with Johann Strauss’ all-time greatest hit – “An der schönen, blauen Donau”.  But where Strauss remains stately and imperial, Brahms will even dabble with fiery czardas.  This spicy bacchanalia is served with incandescent infectiousness.

A REFLECTION

laugh as the sea laughs, the wind laughs,

without the laughter sounding like broken glass;

drink and in drunkenness grab life,

dance the dance without losing the step,

touch the hand of a stranger

in a day of stone and agony
