Completed in 1869, the first collection of Liebeslieder-Walzer, op.52, became a great hit after Brahms and Clara Schumann performed as accompanists at the premiere of his arrangement for singers and four-hand piano. These 18 love songs for mixed vocal quartet and four-hands piano pay homage to the city of Vienna. In 1874, Brahms went on to write a sequel, the 15 Neue Liebeslieder-Walzer, op.65.
Generally simple and concise, at times serious or cheerful, dark or luminous, these songs are all waltzes. Not all are for four voices, however; some call for one or two soloists, or contrast one vocalist to the three others.
