Lullaby For Brahms, A
From Plank Road Publishingadapted/arr. Karl Hitzemann
To help introduce this great composer to your students, we have created the song "A Lullaby For Brahms." This piece features snippets of a few of his most recognizable works as an introduction. Then, using the beautiful Intermezzo In A major as a melody, your singers get to sing about various aspects of Brahms' life and the things that motivated him (long walks in nature) and plagued him (he was somewhat of a perfectionist). It's a great way to start a unit on Brahms and/or classical music.
The accompaniment for this song is written for piano, flute, and strings. The piano part is very close to Brahms' original work. (from Music K-8, Vol. 27, No. 4)
