Program Notes on Lullaby, Op. 49, No. 4 by Brahms :

This famous Wiegenlied, Op. 49, No. 4 was composed by Johannes Brahms in 1867-1868.

It was first published in Berlin in 1868 as the fourth of five lieders in Brahms' Fünf Lieder, Op. 49.

This Wiegenlied is a cradle song also known as Brahms' Lullaby or Guten Abend, gute Nacht [Good evening, good night].

The melody of Brahms' Lullaby is one of the most famous and recognizable throughout the world, and it is used by parents to sing their babies to sleep.

The Lullaby is dedicated to Bertha Faber, a friend of Brahms', on the occasion of the birth of her second son.

In her youth, Brahms had been in love with her, and he constructed the melody of the Wiegenlied to suggest, as a hidden countermelody, a song that she used to sing to him.

This lieder was originally composed for voice and piano in the key of E flat Major.

This score is an arrangement for violin with piano accompaniment.

It is set in the key of A flat Major.

The violin part is appropriate for Grade 7 violinists.

The first verse is to be played entirely on the G string.

The second verse uses double stops in the first four positions.

Wiegenlied

Guten Abend, gute Nacht,
mit Rosen bedacht,
mit Näglein besteckt,
schlupf' unter die Deck!
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will,
wirst du wieder geweckt.

Guten Abend, gute Nacht,
von Englein bewacht,
die zeigen im Traum
dir Christkindleins Baum.
Schlaf nun selig und süß,
schau im Traum 's Paradies.
