A refined and original collection of waltzes for piano by Dora Delyska. Alongside famous works by Schubert, Strauss and Ravel we find lesser known pieces by Ligeti, Bartók and Debussy.

‘In my project “Alles Walzer, einmal anders!”, I have tried to build up a complex program around the simplicity of the dance. All the pieces are connected to the waltz, by name, rhythm or a sound image. But each one has an individual structure and creates its own universe of emotions. The significant waltzing rhythm is the core, that unites all the compositions from beginning till the very last piece, which creates a clear musical line and a feeling of completeness.

‘The first association one has with a waltz is the Viennese one. The phrase “Alles Walzer” is said just before the couple enters the dance floor and marks the beginning of the waltz (in Austria). It is the brief moment when expectation turns into action, when silence melts into the music. The second part of the title “einmal anders” (once on a different way) refers to the different side of the waltz, that is represented on this CD by less known compositions, such as waltzes by Ligeti, Bartók and Debussy.’

– Dora Delyska
