Nice. Very good work, sir.  Thank you.  I especially appreciate the Bach page... the anatomy of a fugue makes me laugh.  Music 'critics' often use the word 'fugue' to 'describe' music (they seem to think it means 'sad') and never realizing that it has a very precise musical meaning.  Any recommendations on Brahms?  I am completely unfamiliar with his works.

Brahms has so much to offer, and I have not even listened to everything...but still, the following should be a good introduction:
Chamber: Piano Trio No. 1 op. 8
Solo piano: Variations on an Original Theme op. 21, 1
Orchestral: Symphony No. 2 op. 73
Brahms light: Hungarian Dances WoO 1 (for piano)

On the topic of listening guides, would that others posted some too, if they know any.
