Valse-Impromptu, S213


The Valse-Impromptu, Valse mélancolique and Valse de bravoure are by turns light and witty, delicate and languid, brilliant and cheerful works from Liszt’s early years as a concert performer, but all revised and eventually published in 1852 during Liszt’s time at Weimar. Although they are by no means among Liszt’s most important works, they are all full of charm and originality, and their neglect seems inexplicable.
