Züricher Vielliebchen-Walzer, WWV88


Several of Wagner's original piano works are effectively little gifts he composed in a spirit similar to that represented by the 'Lied ohne Worte' he gave to Kietz in 1840. One such gift was for Mathilde’s sister, Marie Luckenmeyer, who frequently visited Wagner in Zürich where he was living in exile during the 1850s to avoid imprisonment for his revolutionary activities. Wagner’s inscription on Züricher Vielliebchen-Walzer reads: 'Dedicated to Marie of Dusseldorf by the best dancer in Saxony, called Richard the Waltzmaker.'
