Second, there was the use of time divorced from the actual objective surface. 43 This dimension, created during hearing and primarily after, constituted a mixed accumulation of the three other elements. All were contingent on the assumed contact between Brahms and his audience, on Brahms’s tacit assumption that intended or novel inferences from the work of art as experienced would be generated that could, despite the necessary process of individual appropriation and variation, approximate the intended experience.
A certain narrowing of interest may also conserve energy, and I suspect that after a long and exhausting day of struggling with musical problems, insufficient energy remained for him to attend to the “less important” matter of social conformance. (2) Psychological conflict: Brahms may have been torn between disobedience and conformity. This polarization undoubtedly reflected the influence of his parents, who were so widely discrepant in age, social background, and cultural attitudes. In regard to his habits of dress, one of my favorite anecdotes is about Brahms leaving home as a teenager.
Several members of a female choir he conducted in Hamburg adored him, and a singer from Vienna named Bertha Porubsky may even have encouraged him to move to that city. The relationship did not continue. However, when Bertha later married and had a child, Brahms composed his famous Wiegenlied (Lullaby), op. 49, no. 4, for her. A more substantial romance was with Agathe von Siebold, the daughter of a professor in Göttingen, introduced to him by Joachim. Brahms is said to have given her an engagement ring, and when Clara Schumann found out about this, she warned him not to marry Agathe.
