Waltz No 4 in B flat major


The Waltz No 4 in B flat major dates from 1903 and starts, as Balakirev so often does, with a big flourish, which will be further developed in the middle section, before virtuoso demands once again pile up towards the coda.

from notes by David Fanning © 2011

La Valse no 4 en si bémol majeur date de 1903 et s’ouvre, comme souvent chez Balakirev, sur une imposante fioriture, qui sera développée dans la section centrale, avant que les exigences virtuoses ne s’accumulent de nouveau vers la coda.

Français: Hypérion

Der Walzer Nr. 4 in B-Dur von 1903 beginnt wie so oft bei Balakirew mit einem großen Ausbruch, der im Mittelteil weiter entwickelt wird, bis die virtuosen Anforderugen sich auf dem Weg zur Coda erneut anhäufen.
