Brahms composed his Second Serenade in 1858-59 and directed the opening night himself on 10 February 1860 in Hamburg. Special about this piece is the absence of violins in the orchestra. The five parts together last approximately half an hour. Brahms dedicated this work to Clara Schumann, who seemed quite enchanted with it. Today both serenades are often seen as preliminary studies for his later four great symphonies, as well as Brahms answer to some of the genius serenades of Mozart.
