La Valse for Two Pianos: The Composer's Original Version Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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.

Synopsis:

Ravel's La Valse is among the most well-known and popular of his orchestral compositions. But like some other famous Ravel orchestral works, La Valse was originally written for piano duet (1919-1920). This edition reproduces that original piano duet version. It displays all the virtuosity and technical brilliance, as well as the sensual richness, that are hallmarks of Ravel's style. This edition includes two complete copies of the work shrink-wrapped in a sturdy folder.
