Valse tendre, Op 119
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
A genre at which Chaminade excelled was the waltz. The Op 119 Valse tendre, published in 1906, is a example of one of her flamboyant concert waltzes, the tenderness of its title less evident in the swirling ballroom of the F major outer sections as in the B flat trio (though even here a brief D minor interruption hints, perhaps, at the rebuff of an importunate rival).
