Range O liebliche Wangen

O liebliche Wangen, a setting by Paul Fleming, was composed by Johannes Brahms between 1958-68 and published in 1968. It is the fourth song of Fünf Lieder.

Published in 1868, this song cycle echoes opus 46 aesthetically with the settings of two poems by Georg Friedrich Daumer inspired by the medieval Persian poet Hafis. The first, third and fourth lied are particularly well-known. At the time of the composition, Brahms had already settled in Vienna and been appointed conductor of the Vienna Singakademie before resigning a year later. This furthered his interest in vocal music and many of his choir and melody works were composed from then on. The unity of the song cycle is to be found in the music as the texts are quite assorted: two poems by Georg Friedrich Daumer, a text by Ludwig Uhland, one by Paul Fleming and a closing song on a poem by Goethe… 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.

O liebliche Wangen is the fourth lied of the song cycle. Built around an AAA’ structure, it sets a poem of Paul Fleming narrating the desire experienced by a man, looking at a woman’s cheeks. The broken cords on the off-beats at the right hand of the piano and the fast-lively tempo, seem to illustrate this excitement and powerful craving. Brahms varies the third verse towards more lyricism, closing the song, as he often did, in a grand, impressive way.
