    • Abstract:
      The biography of Johannes Brahms has been marked by a persistent web of myth regarding the circumstances of his childhood and upbringing, with some biographers basing their understanding of the man on these distorted events of his childhood. This paper examines the components of the myth, and a general description of the kind of research needed to come to a more realistic understanding of the life. The underlying point of the paper is a general discussion of how musicologists, historians, and scientists deal with the issue of "truth" and facts. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Toute tentative de cerner la vie de Johannes Brahms est depuis toujours voilée par divers mythes concernant son enfance et son éducation, certains biographes basant leur compréhension de l'homme sur ces événements déformés de ses jeunes années. L'article passe en revue les principales composantes du mythe et décrit de façon générale le type de recherche nécessaire pour arriver à une compréhension plus réaliste de sa vie. Le point sousjacent de l'article est une discussion générale de la façon dont musicologues, historiens et scientifiques traitent de la question de la « vérité » et des faits. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Die Biografie von Johannes Brahms ist von einem anhaltenden Mythos bezüglich der Umstände seiner Kindheit und Erziehung geprägt, und einige Biografen begründen ihr Verständnis seiner Persönlichkeit mit diesen verdrehten Ereignissen seiner Kindheit. Dieser Aufsatz untersucht die Bestandteile von diesem Mythos und beschreibt die Art der Forschungmethoden, die ein realistischeres Verständnis seines Lebens ermöglichen würden. Was diesem Aufsatz zugrundeliegt, ist eine Untersuchung, wie Musikwissenschaftler, Historiker und Naturwissenschaftler jeweils mit "Wahrheit" und "Tatsachen" umgehen. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
