I've never been a Brahms fan, but earlier this week I heard this piece on the radio and I was sold.
I need more like it, be it by Brahms himself or other composers. What I really want is compositions with that intense, gloomy, autumnal mood. The closest I've gotten before I heard the Clarinet Quintet is Sibelius' Piano Quintet.
All help appreciated.
Other than that, let's discuss this awesome piece of music.
