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).
