The last of Opus 104, this work sets a brooding, quintessentially German text by Klaus Groth concerning autumn as a reminder of mortality. Klein’s edition omits the second stanza of the poem, but it can be accomodated, penceiled in, as a repeat of the first 19 measures. Minimal divisi, vintage Brams. Duration – 4:30.
