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 little-known jewels such as Versunken.
