The Danish Brahms Society

The society is one of eight in the world and only the second outside Germany and Austria. It was formed in 2012 by the Danish opera singer, music theoretic and Brahms-aficionado Mikkel Thorning. The society's main objective is to further the knowledge on Brahms, his music and the cultural landscape of the days. This is being done through concerts, research, lectures and this website.

The website is updated by the chairman and poses a huge task and we ask for your patience regarding flaws and inaccuracies. Factual errors can be reported to my email. Please don't hesitate to contact

Michael Musgrave (USA), professor and Brahms-researcher
