Despite being published as part of Catoire’s Op 36 the charming Waltz actually dates from Catoire’s earliest years. It is technically quite demanding, with repeated notes and a constantly winding theme of semitonal inflexion.

from notes by Robert Matthew-Walker © 1999

Quoique publiée sous le numéro d’opus 36, cette charmante Valse date en réalité des toute premières années compositionnelles de Catoire. Elle est fort exigeante sur le plan technique, avec des notes répétées et un thème, constamment ondoyant, d’inflexion semitonale.

extrait des notes rédigées par Robert Matthew-Walker © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Der Walzer ist technisch recht anspruchsvoll, mit wiederholten Noten und einem sich ständig windenden Thema mit einer Neigung zu Halbtönen.
