Project summary

„Invitation to the… waltz” takes you on an amazing journey to discover waltz. The album features most-loved masterpieces of romantic music, including the Brahms Waltz A-flat major and the famous Invitation to the dance by Weber. During the romantic period waltz evolved from a simple folk dance, that was popular among austrian peasants into a gentle and elegant balroom dance, danced in the most beautiful castles and palaces of Europe. Piano works of the favorite romantic composers reflect how a simple piano dance became a true „pianistic poem”.
