Liebeslieder Waltzes are distributed across two opus numbers: 52 and 65. The waltzes are a collection of love songs in Ländler style for voices and four hands piano. The lyrics for the Liebeslieder come from Georg Friedrich Daumer’s Polydora collection of folk songs and love poems. While there is no concrete record indicating the exact inspiration for the Waltzes, there is speculation that Brahms’ motivation for the songs was his frustrated love for pianist Clara Schumann, composer Robert Schumann’s wife

Neue Liebeslieder, Op. 65 (New Love Songs), also known as Neue Liebesliederwalzer, is a collection of Romantic pieces written for four solo voices and four hands on the piano. The Neue Liebeslieder were written during the Romantic period between 1869 and 1874. The text of the songs is adapted from folk songs of various areas of Europe including Turkey, Poland, Latvia, and Sicily. The text for songs 1 through 14 were translated and compiled by Georg Friedrich Daumer in his poem series, Polydora; the text for the fifteenth and final song, entitled Zum Schluß (In Conclusion), was written by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
