Range Immer leiser

Immer leiser, a setting by Hermann Lingg , was composed by Johannes Brahms between 1886-88 and published in 1888. It is the second song of Fünf Lieder, op. 105.

Op.105 was published by Brahms in 1888. In his fifties, he was now a worldwide famous composer appraised in Cambridge but even more so in Vienna where he had settled twenty years earlier. As often with Brahms’s, the unity of the song cycle is to be found in the music as the texts are quite assorted: Klaus Groth (N.1), Herman Lingg (N.2), Detlev von Liliencron (N.4), Carl von Lemcke (N .5) and a text from a traditional song (N.3). Brahms shows a very different approach to Schumann’s or Schubert’s song cycles where texts were all chosen among the same collection of poems.

Immer leise is the second song of Brahms’ op.105. The poem by Herman Ling seems to capture many of Brahms’ significant themes: his equivocal relation with Nature and its beauty, this constant parallel between death and lost love. The piano accompaniment is built around shy and blurred harmonies, emphasizing the feeling of abandonment and solitude expressed by the poet. At the vocal line, the frequent rhythmical motif, dotted crotchet-minim, as well as the recurrent use of chromaticism, could suggest the grief and sorrow voiced by the singer.
