Inspired by the mountains and countryside of Austria, Brahms wrote his Second Symphony -- a work that evokes both victory and peace. The composer wrote his Academic Festival Overture as a "thank you" for an honorary degree. It's a sparkling mix of student drinking songs that were popular in the era and offered a cheeky response to the "serious" occasion.
