Description
Did you know that the viola was Brahms's favorite stringed instrument? Along with his Viola Sonatas 1 and 2, Op. 120, and Piano Trio, Op. 114, the group performs his Two Songs for Contralto and Piano with Viola Obbligato, Op. 91—all written at a particularly tranquil time, late in the composer's life. In the enchanting "Geistliches Wiegenlied" ("Sacred Lullaby"), the viola part is based on the medieval Christmas hymn "Josef, lieber Josef mein." Brahms wrote the song for the son of violinist Joseph Joachim and distinguished mezzo-soprano Amalie Schneeweiss, who had named the boy Johannes after Brahms. He also wrote the blissfully domestic "Gestillte Sehnsucht" ("Stilled Longing") for the pair. Images of wind in trees unite the two songs.
