Franz Liszt: Valse-Impromptu

The spirit of a moment captured for eternity

Composed somewhere between 1842 and 1852 (when the work was published), Valse-Impromptu is a relatively unknown piece compared to much of Liszt’s work. A waltz for solo piano, the duration of the piece generally hovers around five minutes. The brief work is romantic in style and contains a number of idiosyncratic strokes that characterise the Liszt’s prowess at capturing the spirit of the moment in free-form musical composition.
