Fanny Mendelssohn was muse to her brother Felix, as Clara Schumann was to her husband Robert and their friend Johannes Brahms. Both also quietly composed, the earliest such works by women ever widely heard, each displaying a singular and profound perspective. The First Serenade of the 24-year old Brahms is his earliest attempt in the symphonic form, serene and inspired by nature.
