Brahms v. Wagner
Presented by Helen Henschel
Although Brahms did not really approve of Wagner's music, he was, especially in middle and later life, very tolerant towards it. On the other hand, Wagner, who had few good words to say about any of his contemporaries, was never tired of showering contempt and invective upon Brahms. For instance, on being shown a score of Brahms's ' Song of Triumph ', he dismissed the work as ' Handel, Mendelssohn, and Schumann swathed in leather'.
