Valse-caprice in A major, Op 31
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Although ‘salon music’ has been the object of much undeserved adverse criticism in more recent times, Scharwenka’s smaller pieces have a consistent quality and appeal, and the Valse-Caprice Op 31 is no exception. After a tentative introduction, the waltz commences innocently enough, but makes increasingly more demands on the pianist as it scurries towards an excitingly virtuoso conclusion.
