Hello all, new to the forums.
I'm 21, and know next to nothing about classical music. I usually listen to classic rock...
And then I had an experience. I heard a piece by J. Brahms, string sextet no. 1 in b-flat,op. 18, (andante ma moderato, whatever that means), specifically the first one minute and thirty seconds of it.I was nearly brought to tears. Never experienced anything like it before.
Based on that, and the fact that I'm partial to string instruments, particularly the violin, can anyone recommend any similar composers/pieces?
Thanks in advance!
