Nanie (Song of Lamentation) is not about simple despair or mere complaint. Even in such dark moments, Schillers romanticism is expressed as a yearning for the unattainable. The work opens with Auch das Schone muss sterben! (Even Beauty must die), and the tension between the veracity of the message and the yearning of the human spirit for the timelessness of temporality and the eternal recurrence of beauty can be sensed in the sheer beauty of Brahms music. Unabridged digitally enhanced reprint of the composers own vocal score that was issued by Breitkopf and Hartel in the early 20th century.
