Brahms told us that early that morning he had found Holderlins poems in the bookcase, and had been deeply moved by the Schicksalslied. When, later in the day we sat down on the shore to rest, we discovered Brahms at a great distance, sitting alone on the beach and writing. These were the first sketches for the Schicksalslied, which was published shortly thereafter. (Albert Dietrich, Summer 1869)


The conductor Hermann Levi, a friend of Brahms, prepared a piano-vocal score of the work in 1871, prior to the works publication. Brahms revised it upon receiving it. He wanted a symphonic sound from the piano part; what he created fully corresponds to the monumentality of the Schicksalslied.
