The Liebeslieder Waltzes op. 52 and their successors the Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes op. 65 are among the most popular works of Johannes Brahms. The unusual medium of the Liebeslieder, which combines piano duo with vocal quartet, unites two distinctive parts of his output: the vocal quartet with solo piano and original piano duo composition, creating an intimate stylistic relation between song and dance. The texts, taken from Daumer’s Polydora, deal with aspects of love, serious, humorous, ironical, sincere.
