I would like to learn some lullabies and wonder which should I take a look at?
Brahms Wiegenlied is one but there must be a lot more nice lullabies to play?


I play piano, bansuri flute, guitars and compose meditative relaxing music! :-)

I was never successful at lullabies; I'd fall asleep before I could finish the piece. sleep


Casio PX-S3000
Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

Ravel, berceuse sur le nom de Gabriel Faure. For piano and violin, there is a transcription for piano on imslp.

Not a lullaby, but rather the story of a "Child Falling Asleep":

Here is a lovely one by Max Reger, which the composer himself arranged for piano:


The score:
https://ks.imslp.net/files/imglnks/...8_Mariae_Wiegenlied_Op_76_No_52_scan.pdf

BTW, Brahms never arranged his Wiegenlied for solo piano, but there are a few transcriptions around.
Take your pick:

Cortot:

Godowsky:

Reger:
https://ks4.imslp.net/files/imglnks/usimg/9/9d/IMSLP13427-Brahms-Rege-Wiegenlied.pdf

.....but this is the easiest:

This must be the most lovely of lullabies - for piano duet (and it's quite easy to play):


But when arranged for solo piano, it becomes a lot harder:

Debussy's Jimbo's Lullaby from Children's Corner is lovely, for insomniac little kids
