Brahms’ Lullaby, op. 49 no. 4 (viola duo)
Title: Brahms’ Lullaby, op. 49 no. 4
Composer: Johannes Brahms, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Violas
Printout: 2 pages
Note: This melody is so widely recognized that many people who sing it to their children don’t even know it was composed by Brahms. It comes from Brahms’ setting of several poems from Des Knaben Wunderhorn, a collection of old German lyrics. It’s excellent music for quiet settings, interludes and so forth.
