Question: When Johannes Brahms would perform his lullabye in concert and people didn't fall asleep...?
would that be considered rude?
A facetious question, I'm sure, but if you make your reputation performing lullabies and nobody falls asleep...well...y'know? It just seems rude.
Answer: Hmmmm. I'm not sure that the music was originally composed as a lullaby. I know the song you're referring to and it is a traditional lullaby with the words that have been put to Brahms music. If you've never been to an orchestral concert, you should go.
Glad you're listening to Brahms. Fine music.
