Johannes Brahms

Johannes Brahms

Born: 1833 Died: 1897

German pianist and composer Johannes Brahms is ranked among the masters of the Romantic era. Although he showed talent at the piano at an early age, he spent much of his young life performing rather than composing. Brahms's career was given a boost by composer Robert Schumann (1810-56) and his pianist wife Clara (1819-96); his close relationship with Clara, especially after she was widowed, has been the source of much speculation ever since. The pair exchanged passionate letters and went on holiday together, but Brahms opted to leave her behind to pursue his career and a life of bachelorhood. By the end of the 1860s he'd settled in Vienna, where he lived until his death from cancer in 1897. Musically he maintained the Romantic tradition of Ludwig van Beethoven, in opposition to the rise of composers such as Richard Wagner and Brahms's friend, Franz Liszt. His most famous composition is the lullaby, "Lied Wiegenlied" ("Cradle Song"), popularly known as simply "Brahms' Lullaby." His compositions include German Requiem (1866), Violin Concerto in D (1878) and Piano Concertos in B Flat (1878-81).

Johannes Brahms : 15 Selected Songs

Review: with CDs of diction lessons and piano accompaniments; includes historical notes, translations and International Phonetic Alphabet With diction lessons recorded by Irene Spiegelman, German diction coach at the Metropolitan Opera, and piano accompaniments recorded by Laura Ward, this collection of the most often taught Brahms songs is an excellent introduction to lieder. The diction for each song is recorded twice: first recited as an actor would speak it, showing flow of the language and mood, followed by a slow, deliberate lesson, allowing time for the student to repeat each line. This experienced language coach adapts the R in German in the slow versions as recommended for classical singers. She is also very sensitive to liaisons between word sounds in the musical settings.

Songlist: Botschaft, Dein blaues Auge, Die Mainacht, Feldeinsamkeit, Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer, Meine Liebe ist , Mondnacht, O liebliche Wangen, Sapphische Ode, Sonntag, Vergebliches, Von ewiger Liebe, Wie Melodien zieht es mir

Johannes Brahms : German Folk Songs  : SATB : 01 Songbook : Johannes Brahms : 9780193856608 : 9780193856608

Johannes Brahms : German Folk Songs

Review: Throughout his life Brahms harmonized and arranged German folk songs for mixed choir. In these masterful versions the elegant simplicity of the originals always maintained, yet Brahms weaves well-shaped vocal lines and adds delicate harmonies to make polished songs of great charm. In this edition, John Lewers has fashioned highly effective and poetic English singing translations, which adhere to the rhyming scheme of the original. The result is a collection of instantly accessible yet little known repertoire, exploring a variety of scenes and moods, which will appeal to all mixed-voice choirs looking for imaginative concert repertoire. German and English text.

Songlist: The Ardent Suitor, One Day I Went a-Riding, By a Lone Woodland Spring, Saint Emmeran, A Dove So White, A Lullaby Prayer, Saint Raphael, One Quiet Night, Farewell, The Lover's Vision, O Sweet, Delightful Maytime, Morning Song, The Reaper, The Heavenly Hunter, Separation, Awaken!, Invite Me, Sweet Maiden, The Fiddler, Below In the Valley, At Night, Awaken!, A House Stands by a Flowing Stream, Roses and Pearls, The Knight and the Lady, The Young Carpenter, Battle Prayer

Johannes Brahms : Three Sacred Choruses for Women's Voices : SSAA : 01 Songbook : Johannes Brahms : 884088959548 : 1480363936 : 35029436

Johannes Brahms : Three Sacred Choruses for Women's Voices

Review: Many of Brahms' early choral works are the result of his work in the 1850s as director of a women's choir in Hamburg and the choral society of Detmold. These three sacred choruses are based on rather complex contrapuntal forms: O Bone Jesu is a metric double canon in contrary motion. Adoramus te, Christe is a continuous four-voice canon at the fourth, fifth and octave. Regina coeli is a canon in contrary motion sung by two soloists with choral interjections of Alleluia. Together with an Ave Maria, these comprise Brahms' only published settings of Latin texts. Duration: ca. 3:30.

Songlist: O Bone Jesu, Adoramus te, Christie, Regina coeli

Consortium : Johannes Brahms : 00  1 CD : Andrew-John Smith : Johannes Brahms : 034571177755 : CDA67775

Consortium : Johannes Brahms

Review: This charming disc presents a comprehensive selection of Brahms's secular choral music. Through his professional activities, Brahms had a continuous interest in producing music for choirs, as well as profound insight into their capabilities. His impressive output of a cappella sacred choruses and motets makes learned and creative reference to such Baroque masters as Gabrieli, Schutz and Bach. Yet Brahms was equally adept in the traditions of the unaccompanied Romantic choral song, the Chorlied, following the lead of Schubert, Mendelssohn and Schumann, and adapting the form to his own characteristic ends. He also wrote a large number of vocal duets and quartets with piano accompaniment, including the popular Zigeunerlieder, which are testimony to his extraordinary fascination for gypsy music and its fertilizing effect on his style.

Songlist: Sechs Lieder und Romanzen, Drei Quartette, Funf Gesange, Zigeunerlieder, Dem Dunkeln Schoss der Heil'gen Erde

Danish National Radio Choir : Brahms Vol 2 : 00  1 CD : Stefan Parkman : Johannes Brahms : 9806

Danish National Radio Choir : Brahms Vol 2

Review: The best known choral piece by Brahms is his German Requiem. Since his teenage years he was involved with choral groups and continued to work with them throughout his life. He wrote numerous songs for a cappella ensembles as well as with accompaniment. The most familiar of these pieces is the Zigeunerlieder, op. 103. These Gypsy songs are usually performed by a soloist and piano, but were originally written for a quartet. This phenomenal recording by the Danish National Radio Choir highlights some of Brahms' work in the choral genre.

Songlist: Drei Gesange, Op. 42, Funf Gesange, Op. 104, Vier Gesange, Op. 17, Sechs Quartette, Op. 112, Zigeunerlieder, Op. 103

Danish National Radio Choir : Brahms:  A Cappella Vol 1 : 00  1 CD : Stefan Parkman : Johannes Brahms : Chan 9671

Danish National Radio Choir : Brahms: A Cappella Vol 1

Review: The German-born Brahms (1833-1897) is considered one of the greatest Romantic composers, while the Danish National Radio Choir (Stefan Parkman, Chief Conductor) is one of the most respected European Choirs performing today. Their pure yet robust sound is a fine complement to the mastery of form that Brahms' works display. Indeed, one of the distinguishing characteristics of his style was his fascination with the contrapuntal forms so often identified with the Baroque and pre-Baroque era: canon, motet, fugue, and the variations thereof. It was accepted at that time to use a folk song or other well-known melody as the basis for the composer's own originality, which was demonstrated through his technical facility and manipulation of accepted idioms. A series of "Marienlieder" comprise a third of the recording, along with seven motets and three compositions commissioned for the Hamburg Industrial Exhibition of 1889. A recording of excellent virtue.

Songlist: Marienlieder, Op. 22:, Der englische Gruss, Marias Wallfahrt, Der jager, Ruf zur Maria, Magdalena, Marias Lob, Two Motets, Op. 29:, Es ist das Heil uns kommen her, Schaffe in mir, Gott, ein rein Herz, Two Motets, Op. 74:, Warum ist das Licht gegeben dem Muhseligen?, O Heiland, reiss die Himmel auf, Fest-und Gedenkspruche, Op. 109:, Unsere Vater hoften auf dich, Wenn ein starker Gewappneter, Wo ist ein so herrlich Volk , Three Motets, Op. 110:, Ich aber bin elend, Ach, arme Welt, Wenn wir in hochsten Noten sein
