Danse des sylphes de La damnation de Faust de Hector Berlioz 'Valse', S475

circa 1860
1828/46; La Damnation de Faust, Op 24

The Valse des Sylphes (thus in the published copy, ‘Danse’ in the Liszt catalogues, and ‘Ballet’ in Berlioz’s score!) is a study in delicate tone-painting in which a pedal D has to be sustained quietly throughout, and the calm to the ear belies the extraordinary amount of moving about the keyboard which the piece entails.
