The second release of four-handed piano duo Marialena Fernandes and Ranko Markovic goes by the name 'Viennese Waltz Export' and sheds light on the development of the waltz over the years and national borders.

Commencing with classical Viennese Waltzes by Johann Strauss I with Tanz-Signale op.218, the journey goes on to Russia with a waltz by Sergei Rachmaninov as well as his arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Suite after The Sleeping Beauty, op.66a for four-handed piano.

Further waltzes include op.39, Nos 14+15 by Johannes Brahms and several short Waltzes by Wolfgang Rihm, whose handling of the tradition includes permeating it again and again with a modern, humorous wink.

This release concludes with the Valse du mystérieux baiser dans l’oeil by Erik Satie, allowing a certain glimpse of emerging musical Dadaism.
