Deuxième valse, Op 77


The Deuxième valse, Op 77, is salon music at its best – a delicately lilting fast waltz, very redolent of Chopin, almost breathless as it swirls around the ballroom and wittily self-intoxicated with its own melodic gaiety.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1992

La Deuxième valse, opus 77, est de la meilleure musique de salon – une valse rapide, délicatement cadencée, qui rappelle beaucoup Chopin, tourbillonnant presque hors haleine autour de la salle de bal et spirituellement à demi-enivrée par sa gaieté mélodique.

Français: Alain Midoux

Der Deuxième valse, Op. 77, ist allerbeste Salonmusik – ein feinfühlig beschwingter schneller Walzer, der stark an Chopin erinnert, regelrecht atemlos von seinem Wirbeln rund um den Ballsaal und auf witzige Art berauscht durch seine ureigene melodische Fröhlichkeit.
