#124 The Smell of Flirting

This waltz is promising and tentative. There's a classy elegance and abstractness. It's really touching only at the end (at 6'20'') and then it runs away.

Hickox is a great reader of Bridge. No caricatures, yet a bit of extemporaneousness belonging to the beginning of the twentieth century.

Composer: Frank Bridge
Work: Valse intermezzo à cordes
Recording: BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Richard Hickox
