It is well know that Johannes Brahms played a big part in
the international fame that befell Antonin Dvořak after
he submitted his work for the Austrian State Stipendium.
But it is much lesser known that Brahms was “visibly
overcome by the mastery and talent of this unknown
individual.” This tremendous pairing in friendship is
analogous when pairing their music and their inventive,
beautiful melodies that were seemingly endless.
