How was your Valentine's Day?

How was your Valentine's Day?
Two of the most well-know "love songs" are Liebesfreud (Love's Joy 愛之喜)and Liebesleid (Love's Sorrow 愛之悲) published by Austrian composer Fritz Kreisler in 1905. His friend 
Rachmaninoff transcribed them to piano scores in 1931. 
They will be part of my repertoire for the Total 
Rachmaninoff recital coming up at the Wallis.
