Reviews

'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)
The Deuxième valse, Op 77, is salon music at its best – a delicately lilting fast waltz, very redolent of Chopin, almost breathless as it swirls around the ballroom and wittily self-intoxicated with its own melodic gaiety.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1992

La Deuxième valse, opus 77, est de la meilleure musique de salon – une valse rapide, délicatement cadencée, qui rappelle beaucoup Chopin, tourbillonnant presque hors haleine autour de la salle de bal et spirituellement à demi-enivrée par sa gaieté mélodique.

Français: Alain Midoux

Der Deuxième valse, Op. 77, ist allerbeste Salonmusik – ein feinfühlig beschwingter schneller Walzer, der stark an Chopin erinnert, regelrecht atemlos von seinem Wirbeln rund um den Ballsaal und auf witzige Art berauscht durch seine ureigene melodische Fröhlichkeit.
