Description

for clarinet and piano The title is a clumsily literal translation of Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzer and the work is, in part, a response to Brahms' wonderfully subtle invocation of the waltz. Like other pieces which are 'about' dance rather than to be danced to, this is abstract music in which the characteristics of the waltz are immanent, not explicit. The piece, like its ancestors, is in a way nostalgic about a lost dance form as well as reflective of the music of a century ago.show more
