As a composer, Max Bruch found himself in a distinctly different position from that of Brahms, a composer only five years his senior but to whom he was constantly compared. In his own words, he never had the financial luxury to risk the instant success of a new work. Any new works had to please both commissioners and audiences alike at the very first performance. Bruch remained true to his style, even as the world and prevailing aesthetics began to change around him.

Max Bruch (1838—1920):

String Octet in B flat, Op. Posth. (1920)
