Brahms  Liebeslieder Walzer op. 52

               Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes op. 65

               Zigeunerlieder op. 103 (1888)

Brahms wrote his two collections of Liebeslieder waltzes to be performed by voices and piano duet at informal social gatherings.  The first collection, premiered by Robert and Clara Schumann, proved so popular that Brahms wrote a second five years later.  As the name implies, they are songs of love in all its guises, accompanied by music in waltz tempo.  For his Zigeunerlieder, Brahms set German texts of Hungarian folk songs in the style of the gypsy music that fascinated him.
