As Brahms titled such compositions in German, the Wiegenlied Op. 49 No. 4, is widely recognized as the most famous of lullabies that mothers sing to their infants. Published in 1868, Brahms dedicated the lullaby to one love of his life, Bertha Faber, on the birth of her second child. Brahms used the same melody as a base for a theme and variations in his Symphony No. 2 in D Major Op. 72. Australian composer Percy Grainger made an arrangement of the Wiegenleid for solo piano, and the 1936 biographical film with Albert Florath as Johannes Brahms, took its title from the opening lines of this song in the German language, Guten Abend, Gute Nacht.
