Speaking of Brahms, I enjoyed hearing his Double Concerto for Violin and Cello on KUSC recently. It was a fine performance, and the wonderful rhythms and melodies came through quite well on my car speakers.

I have sung and played his "A German Requiem" in both German and  English, and am a big fan of that marvelous work.
In college we sang his "Nanie" and that has a special place in my heart.

On the lighter side, I enjoy hearing his "Liebeslieder" Waltzes for small choir and two pianists. 
His Intermezzos for pianos are charming, and I have played some of his Waltzes for Piano, 4-hands with my sister.

Many years ago I worked on playing the piano part for his Violin Sonata in D minor, Op. 108.  Quite challenging! 
I have enjoyed playing and hearing his Sonata for Viola and Piano, Op. 120 sometimes with a violist, sometimes with a clarinetist.

The Second Symphony is a favorite, even though we analyzed it to the nth degree in Intermediate/Advance­d Theory class.   The other 3 aren't bad, either!
