Academic Festival Overture, by Johannes Brahms, was one of a pair of contrasting concert overtures, the other being the Tragic OvertureAcademic Festival Overture was composed during the summer of 1880 as a musical tribute to the University of Breslau, which had honored him with an honorary doctorate the previous year. Due to its easily-grasped structure, its lyrical warmth, as well as its excitement and humor, the work has remained a staple of today’s concert-hall repertoire.
