Brahms: Variations on a theme of Haydn (The St Anthony Choral) (Op. 56)
Stephen Johnson joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Grant Llewellyn for a look at Brahms's pioneering set of orchestral variations: Variations on a theme of Haydn. Just as Mozart and Beethoven before him had used variation form to demonstrate their skills as a performer so Brahms used the form to show off his skills as a composer.
