ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
No one has seriously proposed as the test of a composer’s true greatness his ability to compose a listenable waltz. After listening to this CD you may have second thoughts! Four glittering waltzes by Chopin including the “Minute Waltz” (Schumann says the dancers of these Waltzes should be at least countesses!), waltzes of Liszt including seldom recorded complete Valse Oubliee (forgotten Waltzes that really were forgotten*), the intoxicating Waltz from Gounod’s Faust and the demonic Mephisto waltz by Liszt. Also the seldom played Liszt Valse Impromptu and Album Leaf in the Form of a Waltz -waltzes of surprising variety and ingenuity . The Waltz King, Johann Strauss, is represented by the seldom-performed Schulz-Evler arrangement of the most famous waltz of all – The Blue Danube.

*The fourth Valse Oubliee of Liszt was discovered in 1955.
