Brahms Neue Liebeslieder/Walzer (Waltzes) Op.65 Facsimile Hardback with CD

“… and so gladly would I have given you a hundred-thousand kisses!”- Georg Friedrich Daumer

A circle of friends as a vocal quartet alternating with solo voices and two good pianists - Brahms wrote his “Liebeslieder Walzer” not for the grand concert hall but as chamber music for use at home.  His first collection op. 52 was so successful that in 1874 he wrote a new set on poems by Daumer and Goethe entitled “Neue Liebeslieder”.

In 2010 the Swiss bank UBS placed the autograph of the Neue Liebeslieder on permanent loan to the music room of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich.

For this occasion the library, together with the Brahms Institute of Lübeck University of Music and the musicology department of Zurich University, organised a symposium on the “Liebeslieder Walzer” and their context.

Brahms’ lavishly reproduced manuscript appears in its own hand-stitched volume accompanied by the papers featured at the authoritative symposium in a separate booklet.  All of this is presented in a handsome cloth-bound box along with an audio CD, allowing the work to be experienced both visually and aurally.
