La brise 'Valse de concert', RO30

composer
? 1865; published in New York in 1878; alternative title: The breeze

 
The Breeze represents a return to Gottschalk’s familiar salon style, a vigorous waltz in E flat ‘respectfully dedicated to Mrs. Kate Sanger’. From the title page we learn that ‘This was written by Gottschalk just before leaving New York for the last time and given as a souvenir to his friend Chas. F. Sanger’.

Valse vigoureuse en mi bémol, «respectueusement dédiée à Mme Kate Sanger», La brise représente un retour au style familier de la musique de salon de Gottschalk. La page de titre nous apprend qu’elle «fut écrite par Gottschalk juste avant de quitter New York pour la dernière fois et fut donnée en souvenir à son ami Chas. F. Sanger».

Mit der „Brise“ kehren wir zu Gottschalks bekanntem Salonstil zurück; es handelt sich hier um einen lebhaften Walzer in Es-Dur, der „entsprechend Frau Kate Sanger“ gewidmet ist. Von der Titelseite erfahren wir, dass das Stück „kurz vor Gottschalks letzten Abreise aus New York komponiert und seiner Freundin Chas. F. Sanger als Andenken überreicht“ wurde.
