Brahms is Always Right

.Discussion at our house a few weeks ago after a Hartford Chorale rehearsal of the Brahms Requiem:

S: How are you liking the Brahms? [expecting enthusiastic response]

D: Not.

S: ???? It's great music, beautifully crafted, so expressive. What's not to like?

D: Brahms is always right, but not always good. It's not to my taste. Now, Bach! Bach is always right, and always good.
