About This Item
Brahms enriched the genre of chorus and orchestra with two impressive works from the early 1880s: In 1881, he set a text to Schiller's Nänie (Op. 82, four-part chorus and orchestra) and the next year (1882) he set Goethe's Song of the Fates (Op.89, six-part chorus and orchestra).Goethe's text for Gesang der Parzen (Song of the Fates), Op.89 explores the concept of fate as it relates to mankind. The text admonishes us to "Fear the Gods! They hold the power In eternal hands And can use it As they please." Brahms' setting portrays the contrast between the capriciousness of the Fates and the uncertainty of mortals in a variety of ways. Unabridged digitally enhanced reprint of the composer's own vocal score that was issued by Breitkopf und Härtel in the early 20th century.
