These Drei Notturnos appeared in 1850 in two different versions: the first for high voice and piano and the second for piano solo. In the latter version the music is preceded by the song texts (no. I Hohe Liebe, no. II Seliger Tod: with texts by Ludwig Uhland, no. III O lieb, so land Du lieben kannst: text by Ferdinand Freiligrath). The third Liebestraum - in the best tradition of nocturnes - is one of the most frequently played piano pieces of all. This is not least because it can be played by very skilled amateurs despite its pianistic bravura (our level of difficulty is 6/7).

    You just can't get it wrong with Henle: the notes are crystal-clear, well printed on good paper...a pleasure to read, and this music does justice to such fine edition!

    Playing this song is difficult, but not impossible with the Henle edition. The music is so much easier to read and learn than other publishers' editions.

    Difficulty Level:
  • August 26, 2006 Fantastic Pieces

    Liszt's "Liebestraume" (Dreams of Love) are three of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written, and I was happy to find that they're really not too terribly difficult (don't get me wrong - they're definitely not easy or even intermediate-level, but they're not as...

    strenuous as many of Liszt's other works). The third Liebestraum is by far the most famous of the three, but the first two are equally wonderful as well. There's some tricky cadenzas and wild hand crossings throughout the pieces, so be sure to learn these thouroughly to get the most satisfaction out of them. I very highly recommend these richly rewarding pieces, but only to advanced pianists.
