In MayJohannes Brahms accepted the directorship of the Vienna Singakademie, followed in September by the directorship of the Vienna Gesellschaftskonzerte.

During his tenure in both positions, Brahms produced numerous works for chorus, both accompanied and a cappella. Many liebesloeder these works are for vocal quartet, although they are occasionally performed by larger ensembles.

Among these are the Liebeslieder Waltzes, Luebeslieder. Brahms ‘ Liebeslieder Love Songs Waltzes consist of eighteen poems arranged for two pianos and vocal quartet, setting texts from George Friedrich Daumer’s Polydora. Brahms ‘ sketches suggest that he conceived the shape of the entire cycle before completing individual waltzes.

This direction, made possible by the fact that the vocal lines are present in the piano part, was evidently inserted by the publisher, who hoped to increase sales.

Brahmsof course, realized that this removed some of the most charming aspect of the pieces, and the direction was omitted from the second set of Liebeslieder, Op. In the winter ofBrahms orchestrated a suite of waltzes taken from the Liebeslieder for a Berlin performance. In liebdslieder, Brahms ‘ Liebeslieder are stylized Viennese waltzes.

Brahms ‘ settings tends toward folk music in their melodic characteristics, with none of the text painting that a lesser composer may have employed. A few numbers, however, stand out from the rest. Those that are concerned with different expressions receive appropriate treatment.

In the ninth song, a man notices a pink-faced girl peering out of a house on the bank of the Danube. Ten iron bars protect the doors of the house, but the man explains he could easily tear them down. The calm atmosphere is shattered as the man explains his intention of breaking through the bars, after which the liebes,ieder lines return with their fluid music.
