One piece being performed will be Liebeslieder Waltzes, Op. 52 and 65, composed in 1868 with 18 short movements.
Johannes Brahms lived 7 May 1833 to 3 April 1897.
Text is from Polydora by Georg Friedrich Daumer.
Johannes Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes (Liebeslieder-Walzer) are a collection of love songs in Ländler style (folk dances in 3/4) for voices and piano four hands. The lyrics for the Liebeslieder come from Georg Friedrich Daumer’s Polydora, a collection of folk songs and love poems. While there is no concrete record indicating the exact inspiration for the Waltzes, there is speculation that Brahms’ motivation for the songs was his frustrated love for the pianist and composer Clara Schumann.
