'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)

Quatrième valse, Op 91
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Quatrième valse, in D flat, is a good example of Chaminade’s mastery of this particular dance genre. After a swaggering opening the blithe and attractive main tune dominates the proceedings, sometimes enveloped in trills and ornamentation. The middle section, whose subject is rather more serious and ardent, is in B minor. The modulatory passage that then leads back to the main waltz tune is subtly expressive, and the coda is Chaminade at her most flamboyant.
