Brahms: Liebeslieder Walzer for choir and piano duet
Part songs by Robert Schumann and Clara Schumann
Music for piano duet

Come, then, with your dark eyes - come, when the stars beckon!

When Brahms moved to Vienna, he poured out his hopes and dreams to the rhythm of a waltz.
His bittersweet Lieberslieder Walzer are the singing, swinging heart of a concert that positively
glows with romance, as the University of Oxford’s premier chamber choir Schola Cantorum
explores the private, intensely poetic musical world of the two people who meant more to Brahms
than anyone else: Robert and Clara Schumann.
