What is a Liederabend?

Liederabend dates back to the 1800s, when musicians and lovers of music would gather at someone’s home, and one or more singers would perform the songs of composers of the day. In the field of classical music, these songs are referred to today as “art songs”, and the German art songs are called “Lieder”. In Germany, the great age of song came in the 19th century. German and Austrian composers had written music for voice with keyboard before this time, but it was with the flowering of German literature, in the Classical and Romantic eras, that composers found high inspiration in poetry that sparked the genre known as the “Lied”.
