Valse Enigmatique No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The two Stephen Hough trifles are ‘enigmatic’ in their use of musical notes representing the letters of words—in this case, two people’s names. In addition, the first Valse contains quotes from Mendelssohn and Grieg; and a ‘chinoiserie’ is present and intended in the second. My own initials (‘E flat’ and ‘B’ in German nomenclature) are woven throughout both pieces … but more than that I’m not prepared to divulge!
