Reviews

'As in the previous volumes, Peter Jacobs shows himself to be fluent, clean-fingered, elegantly delicate where required, and able to invest the music with fine nuances of tone and pace―an ideal interpreter of Chaminade' (Gramophone)
Valse-ballet, also known as Chaminade’s Valse No 6, is a vivacious and whimsical piece in C major, very clearly laid out in defined sections. The G major second strain mingles a cheerful fanfare with the main tune; a more thoughtful, rather Chopinesque idea in A minor occupies the middle section, and the fanfare returns in E before the Valse’s opening music is reprised.

La Valse-ballet, également connue comme la Valse no 6 de Chaminade, est une pièce vivace et fantasque en ut majeur, très clairement construite en sections définies. La seconde subdivision en sol majeur mêle une fanfare joyeuse à la mélodie principale; un thème plus réfléchi en la mineur, plutôt chopinesque, occupe la section centrale, puis la fanfare revient en mi avant la reprise de la musique d’ouverture de la Valse.

Français: Hypérion

Valse-ballet ist auch als Chaminades Valse Nr. 6 bekannt und ein lebhaftes, neckisches Stück in C-Dur, dessen Abschnitte deutlich von einander abgegrenzt dargelegt werden. Im zweiten Thema in G-Dur mischt sich eine fröhliche Fanfare mit der Hauptmelodie; eine recht nachdenkliche, eher chopinähnliche Idee in a-Moll ist im mittleren Abschnitt vorherrschend, während die Fanfare vor der Reprise des eröffnenden Walzermaterials abermals in E erschallt.
