About "Brahms' Lullaby"
Brahms' Lullaby's real title is "Guten Abend, gute Nacht" ("Good evening, good night"), Op. 49, No. 4. It is also often called "Brahms' Wiegenlied." It was written by a German composer, Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897) from the romantic era. It was originally written for voice and piano. However, there are many arrangements for different instrumentation including orchestral version to a single music box. The melody is well-known in the world.
Tips for playing Level 4 "Brahms' Lullaby"
This arrangement is at Level 4 (intermediate). And it is in the key of F major which is only a whole step higher than the original key. This song is a lullaby. So, please play slowly and gently, and not loud. Please refer to our free complete audio sample on the top of this page. You'll notice that it is arranged slightly in the Latin style (especially the left-hand accompaniment part). The damper (sustain) pedal signs are not marked. However, it's a good idea to use it for once every measure. The fingering numbers are provided in the first 2 measures for the left hand since that's the most challenging thing technically for this entire arrangement. The right-hand plays the melody, most of the time with 2 notes at the same time to create harmonies. The left-hand plays broken chords most of the time to accompany the melody.
