Brahms returned to his home town of Hamburg - where his reputation as a composer was steadily growing - in 1859, and he threw himself into the city's musical and cultural life. But his ambition to conduct the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra was thwarted, and a job opportunity in Vienna turned out not to be quite what he expected.
Gesange, Op 17
