'Jacobs treats the music with affection, but also respect; he's served by an excellent recording' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'Well worth the attention of those who enjoy piano music that seeks merely to soothe, charm and enchant' (Gramophone)

'In this well recorded, presented and imaginatively conceived issue we see again just how well Hyperion can produce the goods! It is a particular pleasure to see this issue on the market' (CDReview)

Valse romantique, Op 115
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
