Brahms could often be found walking in the mountains and exploring the countryside as he felt it helped him think through his musical ideas.
While playing music in a tavern one evening Brahms met Eduard Remenyi, a famous Hungarian Gypsy violinist. Brahms was enthralled and used the rhythms and melodies of this music as his inspiration for his 21 Hungarian Dances, which he originally wrote for the piano.
He loved performing them for his friends and would later orchestrate three of the dances himself, with other composers arranging the remaining pieces.
