▯ 9/19 – Brahms ▯ 380 songs folk song was very important from Brahms he didn’t care as much for the poetry as he did for the actual music. Brahms called his lieder lots of different names. Very liberal socially but very conservative musically. Continued the “tradition of Beethoven and Schubert”. His music tended toward classicism. The difference is brooding emotion. Uses the “CLARA” symbol. (Song of Love movie on YouTube) He loved hemiola (2/3 or 3/2) Brahms doesn’t employ as direct text painting as other composers. His text painting is more in the realm of the context of emotion. EPITOME OF ROMANTICISM There are many different sections in Brahms’ works. There is a “narrator” who sets up the story and then we hear what happens after. o Multiple different emotions by different characters shown by very different music. o More subtle way of text painting ex. – in “Von ewiger Liebe” the girl talks of iron and steel and you hear a “hammer” sound in the bass accompaniment. o Had a love of octaves (especially in the bass) o Brahms loved warm voices but didn’t mind if something was transposed.
