"It is not subtle, what I am undertaking at the moment," remarked Maurice Ravel, "it is a Grand Valse, a sort of homage to the memory of the Great Strauss, not Richard, the other—Johann!"
Ravel's La Valse exists in three versions, including this one for two pianos, all written between December 1919 and March 1920. This edition reproduces the composer's original piano duet version, which displays all the virtuosity, technical brilliance, and sensual richness that are the hallmarks of his style. From the opening rumblings in the bass register, a waltz rhythm emerges and expands into a grand Viennese dance in the finest tradition of Johann Strauss--an increasingly passionate work that strides into a spectacular conclusion.
Perfect for duet players, this edition includes two complete copies of the work.
