Brahms Die Liebende schreibt (live, 2009)

We performed this in a recital at the Wigmore Hall in 2009 in a programme of Schubert and Brahms.

In the programme was also Schubert’s setting of the same text, by Goethe (one of the featured poets in the programme). There are quite a few well-known settings of this song – our favourite is probably the Mendelssohn but there’s something very tender about Brahms’ setting.

The Lied and Art Song Texts Page has the text.
