I can't reproduce your error by moving the Lilypond application (i.e. 
if I move it, I get a different error) so I don't think that that's 
the problem.  Perhaps you have some leftover .aux etc. files left 
over from your previous attempt that are causing problems.

Assuming your file is called <brahms.tex>, do you have a folder 
<brahms-out> as well?  This is where lilypond puts all the associated 
snippets before creating your final output file.  Try deleting that 
folder and trying to typeset again.

This won't do it.  Your original source file was fine as it was.
