The Valse romantique, Op 115, is a large-scale concert waltz with a rich harmonic palette and a vigorous elegance that suggests Chabrier (compare his own Valses romantiques for piano duet). After an agitated A minor middle section, the waltz becomes steadily more brilliant and virtuosic as it approaches its end.

La Valse romantique, opus 115, est une valse de concert importante, à la palette harmonique riche et avec une élégance vigoureuse qui fait penser à Chabrier (comparez ses propres Valses romantiques pour piano à quatre mains). Après une section centrale tourmentée en la mineur, la valse devient progressivement plus brillante et plus virtuose comme elle arrive à sa fin.

Der Valse romantique, Op. 115, ist ein großangelegter Konzertwalzer mit reicherer harmonischer Palette und einer kraftvollen Eleganz, die auf Chabrier hindeutet (man vergleiche seine Valses romantiques für Klavier zu vier Händen). Nach einem erregten Mittelteil in a-Moll nimmt der Walzer stetig an Brillanz und Virtuosität zu, während er sich seinem Ende nähert.
