The IUP voice and piano faculty join forces for an evening
of art songs, arias, and piano solos, plus Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes, opus 52.
Performers include soprano Mary Logan-Hastings, mezzo-sopranos Raquel Winnica
Young and Maria Fenty Denison, tenors Oliver Lo and Ryan Beeken, and basses
Joseph Baunoch and Craig Denison. Pianists include Henry Wong Doe and Sun Min
Johannes Brahms’ 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.
