Beller-McKenna’s writing style is engaging, and his background material is comprehensive, with many sources in both historical and modern writings… A worthy contribution to Brahms scholarship, and to a better-rounded view of the composer’s life and work.—Virginia Hancock, Notes

Brahms and the German Spirit is…an earnest study of the subject of religion and nationalism in Brahms’s life. Daniel Beller-McKenna has woven a coherent tapestry from many strands.—Styra Avins, Music and Letters

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
