Composer Albert Dietrich (1829-1908) in 1890.

German composer Albert Dietrich (1829-1908) studied with Robert Schumann in Düsseldorf where he also met Johannes Brahms with whom he developed a lifelong friendship and both composers held Dietrich’s talent in high regard. As musical director at the court of Oldenburg in Germany for thirty years, Dietrich presented many works by Brahms who also visited Dietrich there and performed frequently with him. The year after Brahms’ death in 1897, Dietrich published his “Memories of Brahms” which remain an important biographical source today. The Oldenburg State Orchestra performs Dietrich’s only violin concerto, in D minor from 1874, for today’s noon masterpiece at 2 p.m.
