#49 The Smell of Waltz

It's like a folk parody of a waltz by Strauss. Randy violin, touching melodies, jumpy rhythm.

It's fascinating how the mood is different for piano and for violins. Piano is always holding back, almost never supporting, trying to regulate violins–yes, two violins. Perlman is playing them both, overdubbing himself.

Composer: Pablo de Sarasate
Work: Navarra
Recording: Itzhak Perlman, David Garvey
