Very sweet, ananth!

:okok: :casque: :bravo:

When my daughter would be 6 years younger, i would play it for her.

I don't know that Brahms was the composer.

Give us more of this nice pieces, please.

thks for sharing

Thanks to all for the comments
mika, I hope to play this one day to my own little daughter (but I think it'll be a few years before I have a daughter) :)
btw, it appears that the original version actually had lyrics of a lullaby (in German)
giftson, I am surprised that someone recognised Ilaiyaraja here! :!:
but seriously, he is my favorite composer - he has composed so many marvelous gems, but is overshadowed by the label of "film music"
once again, thanx to all who downloaded and listened

now I know what to play for my daughters!! (Since a couple of days they want me to play guitar before they go to sleep) I guess this was originally for piano? It sounds very well on guitar and you play it very well as well (...and here's the record for the most `well's in one sentence... oh well..) :D

Really Ananth, superb lullaby. Well played for sure.

In fact, you have inspired me to :russa: call it a day and retire...

Beautiful, :ouioui:

Russ :) zzzzzzz

In fact the lyrics where taken by Brahms from an old and mighty collection called (Des Knaben Wunderhorn) :shock:


Post by masoroso » Wed May 31, 2006 11:05 am

Des Knabens Wunderhorn
..which Mahler and Webern also used in their great vocal works

So it must have been a very inspiring book :-)

Thank you all for your comments :)
I am glad that you enjoyed it.

You did a great job bringing out the melody. Great contrast. That was the easy version?

I like it:)

Was it played on a steel strung guitar?
