Range An den Mond

An den Mond , a setting by Karl Joseph Simrock , was composed by Johannes Brahms in 1877. It is the second song of 5 Lieder, op. 71.

In 1877, Brahms has been living in Vienna for more than a decade and is a recognized composer, conductor and musician. His music, at the time, has become so successful that his editor, Fritz Simrock, is constantly asking him for new pieces to publish, as his works brought in substantial benefits. An den Mond is the second lied from Brahms’ song cycle, 5 Lieder, op 71. Brahms chose to set his song on a text by Karl Joseph Simrock, the oncle of his publisher, Fritz Simrock. This poet had died in 1877, the year preceding the composition, so perhaps, Brahms intended the song as a way of honoring his memory.
In this song, the melody is extremely legato and fluid while the generous piano accompaniment supports the ascending vocal line. The harmonies carry the melancholia and sadness the singer is expressing with a deep warm bass. The constant three-measure phrases create a sense of restlessness and yearning for something unreachable.
