Liebeslied is a miniature for solo viola in homage to Kreisler's salon pieces for violin and piano. In them Kreisler paints a whimsical, romantic and sentimental notion of love, so in tribute to that Liebeslied is like an ugly cousin to those works, trying to capture the all the things he left out about love because of course it's not as simple as he portrays.
In deference to the performer, I should add that the piece frequently demands octaves that are a quarter tone "out of tune".
