About Franz Liszt's Liebesträume

The three Liebesträume were originally conceived around 1845 as songs after poems by Ludwig Uhland and Ferdinand Freiligrath.
In 1850 two versions appeared simultaneously as a set of songs for high voice and piano, and as transcriptions for piano solo. The poems depict three different forms of love: Uhland´s Exalted Love (Nocturne No. 1) is about religious feelings, while the second song, I Was Dead, evokes erotic love. Freiligrath´s poem for the famous third Nocturne is about unconditional mature love: "Love as long as you can! The hour will come when you will stand at the grave and mourn."
