Johannes Brahms and the family Miller Aichholz in Gmunden
The Composer Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897) spent the summer months of 1880, 1882 and 1889 – 1896 in Bad Ischl and from there, he often visited his Viennese friends, family Olga and Dr. Victor von Miller zu Aichholz in their villa in Gmunden.
Brahms friend and enthusiastic collector Dr. Victor von Miller zu Aichholz (1845 – 1910) founded the world´s first Brahms museum in 1900 in his properties in Gmunden, after his friend Brahms had died. Victor von Miller zu Aichholz specially adapted one of his buildings and exhibited the original furniture of his Ischl living room from the summer flat. Further exhibitions show countless Brahms portraits, statues, photos and articles of personal possession from Johannes Brahms.
Since 1939, the exhibits of this museum have been in the possession of the Kammerhof museum Gmunden. The most interesting and most valuable exhibits are being shown to the public after such a long time.
As such, the furniture from Johannes Brahms bedroom and living room from his summer flat in Ischl will be a special highlight. Complemented with articles from Brahms private possessions such as portraits, sculptures, reliefs and draft monuments. The focal point is the Bösendorfer concert piano on which Brahms played during his summer stays in Bad Ischl and which Victor von Miller zu Aichholz was able to purchase in Pula today in Croatia. A specially adapted small cinema shows photo slides of Brahms visits to Gmunden.
In addition to the Brahms exhibition, there are countless events, concerts, presentations and more. Information can be found on our website: www.k-hof.at
