This first volume of Brahms' complete songs spans a period of nearly 25 years. A prolific composer of Lieder, Brahms' adherence to traditional form was accompanied by a modern approach to compositional style. Thematically, most songs explore ideas of love, loneliness and solitude, perfectly exemplified by the Vier Gesänge, Op. 43. In a similar way the Sechs Lieder, Op. 86 share a common theme of a farewell to life. This volume contains some of his greatest songs, including Die Mainacht, as well as littleknown jewels such as Versunken.
4 Gesänge, Op. 43
6 Lieder, Op. 86
