Brahms’ beloved Liebesleider Walzer were originally conceived as chamber music for vocal quartet and piano four-hands in 1868. Due to their popularity, he orchestrated several of them in 1870. Now in 2017, composer/theorist Jay Kowarsky has created a wonderful new chamber orchestration for the entire set. The Arizona Choir is thrilled to present this “world premiere” and to create the subsequent CD recording.
