Liebeslieder-Walzer, Op 114

June 1852

The younger Johann’s music was always more lyrical, more relaxed and more refined than that of his father, his style lacking the latter’s unquenched restlessness. This is particularly evident in the graceful Liebeslieder-Walzer (‘Love-Song Waltzes’), which were among the earliest of the younger Johann’s big successes. They were first performed at a summer concert in the Volksgarten in June 1852.

from notes by Andrew Lamb © 2000

La musique de Johann II fut toujours plus lyrique, plus détendue et plus raffinée que celle de son père, au style empreint d’impatience inassouvie. Ceci vaut particulièrement pour les gracieux Liebeslieder-Walzer (« Valses des chants d’amour »), créés lors d’un concert estival donné dans le Volksgarten, en juin 1852, qui furent parmi les tout premiers grands succès de Johann II.

Français: Hypérion

Die Musik des jüngeren Johann war stets lyrischer, entspannter und kultivierter als die seines Vaters, dessen unstillbare Rastlosigkeit dem Stil des Sohnes abging. Das zeigt sich besonders klar in den eleganten Liebeslieder-Walzern, die zu den ersten großen Erfolgen von Johann Strauß (Sohn) zählten. Sie wurden im Juni 1852 bei einem Sommerkonzert im Volksgarten uraufgeführt.
