Best love song?
on: April 28, 2004, 04:04:12 PM
Which in your opinion is the best love song in the entire repertoire? And state in which way! (passionate, romantic, beautiful, dreamy... etc etc)

Also, does anyone have the sheet music to Widmung/Liebeslied? I'd SO like to have it...

When you say "song", you are refering to singing right?  If so, I would say Liszt's original song transcription of Sonetto 104 del Petrarca (before the piano version) because it has one of the sweetest of melody lines ever written.

When I say "song" in this case I mean piece. Unfortunately "love piece" sounds... bizarre.

ooohhh, ok- well, In the classic film "Brief Encounter", Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto is used throughout.  I remember the film being one of the  most brilliant, most touching love films of all time.  For this reason, I have to vote for Rach 2.  I would say Liszt's Liebestraum No. 3, but it is overplayed, and the charm is lost over time.

ps- sorry, I don't have the sheet music for Widmung/Liebeslied.  Maybe you could buy it somewhere.  In my part of the world (Canada), sheet music stores are limited on great classical sheet music, so I go to www.amazon.com (or .ca) or www.sheetmusicplus.net
