Like his mentor, Robert Schumann, Joannes Brahms inspired the next generation of composers, including Dame Ethel Smyth (1858-1944), a pioneering composer, author and suffragette. Her glorious double concerto reflects his influence (and that of Strauss), while asserting her own unique compositional voice.
