* LovableRogue: Brahms' status as a CelibateHero enabled him to largely get away with being one of these, especially later in his life. He once greeted a male friend off the train by giving him a huge hug, then looked at him and said "[[DirtyOldMan Oh, sorry, I thought you were your wife.]]" This period was, however, around the beginning of the suffragette movement and Ethel Smyth (a young Englishwoman who was a keen suffragette and who went on to be a major composer herself) noted that Brahms was only nice to women he thought attractive.

'''Johannes Brahms''' (7 May 1833 - 3 April 1897) was a German composer of the Romantic Era. Like many other prominent composers, he moved to Vienna and reached the height of his career there. During his time, he was known as a "Classical Romantic", as his music was heavily influenced by the Classical Era, which put emphasis on unity of form and development of short, open-ended motives. It says something about Brahms' talents when he was compared to Creator/LudwigVanBeethoven. In his youth, Brahms was the protégé of another famous Romantic composer, Creator/RobertSchumann, for a short time and had a strong friendship with Schumann's wife, Clara.

* EccentricMentor: Brahms had one in the form of RobertSchumann, although Schumann wasn't so much eccentric as mentally ill, eventually committing himself to a mental hospital after a series of suicide attempts and dying there at the age of 46.

* WorthyOpponent: For Brahms it was RichardWagner, although it's more that their respective fanbases considered each to be the ArchEnemy of the other. Brahms actually liked and admired a lot of Wagner's music, even though he disliked Wagner's cult of personality; Wagner did not exactly return the compliment, but he did send Brahms a copy of ''Das Rheingold''.
