Schicksalslied Op. 54
COMPONIST: Johannes Brahms
UITGEVERIJ: Breitkopf und Härtel
INSTRUMENT GROEP: Gemengd koor
The conductor Hermann Levi, a friend of Brahms, prepared a piano-vocal score of the work in 1871, prior to the works publication. Brahms revised it upon receiving it. He wanted a symphonic sound from the piano part; what he created fully corresponds to the monumentality of the Song of Destiny .
