While Robert Schumann’s Spanische Liebeslieder undoubtedly influenced Brahms’ instrumentation, the true inspiration behind Brahms’ beloved Liebeslieder Waltzes was Schumann’s daughter, Julie (an amorous infatuation of Brahms). Additional lieder from Schubert, Ullmann, and Berg complete a program dedicated to affairs of the heart.
