Range Vergebliches Ständchen

Vergebliches Ständchen, a setting of a traditional librettist, was composed by Johannes Brahms between 1981-82 and published in 1982. It is the fourth song of Fünf Romanzen und Gesänge, Op.84.

Op.84 was published by Brahms probably in 1881-1882. Almost in his fifties, he was now a worldwide famous composer appraised in Cambridge but even more so in Vienna where he had settled more than a decade 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: Hans Schmidt wrote the three first poems while the two last ones are folk texts, collected by Anton Wilhelm Florentin von Zuccalmaglio. 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.

Vergebliches Ständchen is the fourth lied of Brahms’ op.84. It sets the lively dialog between a young man and a well-off woman. The woman is full of wit and the whole conversation is humorous and light. Brahms illustrates this aspect with sharp attacks and rhythmic precision at the vocal line. The piano accompaniment is treated in a sprightly way, the dotted notes suggesting how amusing the whole situation is.
