J. Brahms: Liebeslieder Waltzes, op. 52

J. Brahms: 16 Waltzes, for piano 4 hands, op. 39

J. Brahms: Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes, op. 65

The vocal quartet and four-hand piano provide a rich sonic texture to these Liebesliederwalzer, which sing of the joys and sorrows of love, oscillating between the rapturous sweetness of “When your eyes look at me” (“Wenn so lind dein Auge mir”) and the bitterness of “Love is a dark abyss” (“Ein dunkeler Schacht ist Liebe”). The Waltzes for piano, of a different nature, are Brahms’ affectionate tribute to the dance that turned the heads of all Viennese at the time.
