Although a traditionalist at heart, Brahms is always full of surprises. A stand-alone set of variations for orchestra seems a perfectly innocent idea, yet it had hardly ever been done before. So too a symphony of swirling emotions in which every movement ends quietly (audiences at the time were taken completely unawares), and a Romantic concerto in which the two soloists have to share the limelight.
