This breathtakingly lush romantic-era style waltz is majestic and vibrant, with chromatic “rolling river” motifs and rich “golden” jazz-influenced extended harmonies. It’s fabulous for recitals, with rubato tempos and a wide dynamic range. You might just get jealous and keep this piece for yourself!
