Musically, Brahms's lieder are as varied and dramatic as the poetry they accompany. A. Craig Bell employs his keen knowledge of the corpus of the composer's work to show how how every arpeggio and trill was inspired by the sentiment of the verse. Bell also discusses the works that Brahms wrote for more than one voice and piano.
