“Brahms Lullaby” has become the most recognizable tune in association with the baby
Grouped together along with other greats Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig Van Beethoven
All the dances used and analyzed are Vittorio Cecchetto’s renditions and are performed by the “Citta Murrata Orchestra” live at the Teatro Sociale Cittadella in 2007.
Song Dynamic and Form: The song itself consisted of 3 total original melodies and tempos. The song was mirrored and the two mirrored parts were separated by the soft portion of the song 2.09-3.06. If you were to draw the form or shape of the pitch and timbre throughout the song you would end up with two totally symmetrical half’s
Song Dynamic and Form: As I have stated before it was very hard to analyze because of how fast the tempo of the piece was. Another thing that stood out to me was that the transitions in #5 were seamless so it was very hard to figure out where intervals ended and began it is easy to see why this piece is so famous.
On the recording I listened two this piece was played on the same track as Hungarian Dance #5
Song Dynamics and form: This song is probably the most balanced of the three in regards to its dissonance and consonance in that they flow together seamlessly. We see a very common theme throughout these dances as well in that they are moderate to fast tempo which is as the songs title suggests meant to be danced to. I’m not very well versed in Brahms other works but I am surprised by the symmetry in all three of the dances I analyzed.
