Introduction
The Valse des Sylphes (thus in the published copy, ‘Danse’ in the Liszt catalogues, and ‘Ballet’ in Berlioz’s score!) is a study in delicate tone-painting in which a pedal D has to be sustained quietly throughout, and the calm to the ear belies the extraordinary amount of moving about the keyboard which the piece entails.

from notes by Leslie Howard 1989
