Andreas Scholl sings “Guten Abend, gut’ Nacht”

Everyone knows it and has already fallen asleep to it. THE world hit of all sleep melodies. Worldwide it can be heard in almost all children's rooms of the world. We are talking about the "Brahms'schen Wiegenlied" - rather known as "Guten Abend, gut' Nacht". At the beginning of the 19th century Johannes Brahms composed it in Bonn for a friend on the occasion of the birth of her second child, with the announcement: "For always happy use". Since then, this song has developed into a cult. Its uses are innumerable, instrumental and on sound carriers. It is probably the most played first piece of music with which the babies of this world make their first musical experiences. The soundtrack can be found in over 60 films.

Now - a few hundred years later Tamar Halperin and her husband, the singer Andreas Scholl, dedicate themselves to this special lullaby on their latest album "The Family Songbook". The song is now available everywhere - in the foretaste of a peaceful weekend.
