Valse-Caprice for piano and strings 'Wedding Cake', Op 76
EnglishFranÁaisDeutsch
The Valse-Caprice, Opus 76, for piano and strings dates from 1886. Its ‘Wedding Cake’ nickname, while justifiable on account of its origin as a wedding present (for the composer’s pianist friend Caroline de Serres), has unfortunate connotations. Far from being a glitzy confection, the piece is a captivating gem, beautifully written and wholly characteristic of the composer’s art.
