Brahms late choral music

Cameron, do you mean the Zigeunerlieder which are adaptations of Hungarian gypsy music into German?

Well done Socrates, I just

Well done Socrates, I just coulnd’t find the thing! Yes that’s it. I have no idea where my recording of it is gone. All my music in is my laptop, and I played that no long ago. Nowhere to be found now!!

Zigeunerlieder

Glad to be of assistance Cameron.

A very small number of recent recordings available on CD.

No idea about downloading or streaming. Not my thing.

 

Hope you have a backup of all your music on an external hard disc? I know people who have lost everything when the hard disc of the laptop irreparably crashed.

I always have my CDs at the ready.

But I also have an external hard disc for when travelling. 

Wikepedia notes that:

Wikepedia notes that:

The Zigeunerlieder ("Gypsy songs") op. 103 and op. 112, nr. 3–6, are a song cycle for 4 singers (or choir) and piano by JohannesBrahms. Op. 103, nr. 1-7 and 11 exist also in an arrangement for solo voice and piano made by Brahms himself.

Not yet...

back up

Recommend you do so.

In the summer I had a crashed laptop and the nerds could do nothing to retrieve numerous valuable documents for which I had no back-ups. Disaster for my publications. I usually have everything also on the external disc but in this case not.

So back-up your music as soon as possible, otherwise you will be a very unhappy Cameron. Worse than losing a girl-friend! 

Yes, you are right. Will do

Yes, you are right. Will do soon promise!

Zigeuneslieder on record.

The Zigeuneslieder are mostly considered as part of the lieder Opus rather than the Choral one by Brahms. They are often sung as vocal Quartets along with other Quartets for voices. There are also plenty of very good recordings for solo voice (e.g. A.S. von Otter, on DG, Doris Soffel on Ars Musici, Maureen Forrester on CBC). For Vocal Quartets, MDG has introduced its series of the Secular Vocal Quartets, whose first Volume includes the Zigeuneslieder. More, whenever we introduce a thread on the Songs by Brahms.
