Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12th. In celebration of mothers we have rounded up a few classical songs that pay special tribute to mothers and motherhood. Be sure to tune in on Sunday for special Mother’s Day features. Happy Mother’s Day!
Songs my Mother Taught Me buy Antonin Dvorak: This song is often accompanied by a melody that tells of a woman passing down songs she learned to her own children.
A Mother’s Grief by Edvard’s Grieg: This sad composition details the woes of a mother who often spends time worrying about the well-being of her children.
German Requiem by Brahms
While the death of his dear friend Robert Schumann provided an initial impetus for Brahms’s German Requiem, the composer dedicated it to his mother, who died nine years later. The memory of Johanna Brahms is particularly apparent in the work’s fifth movement.
