CLASSICAL OPUS no.93

Jean Sibelius: “Valse triste”

ジーン・シベリウス:「悲しいワルツ」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 5 minutes

Delicate and musing in its fidgety, doomed forays into the most nocturnal of waltzes, the composition flourishes unexpectedly with a series of unsettling, dynamics jolts.  Initially dark and austere, it swells seamlessly and climaxes with emblematic intensity before reclining for the final repose.  This symbolic chiaroscuro was handed down by one of the last of exponents of musical nationalism (in the Finnish case – anti Russian).

A REFLECTION

When sorrow fades

Come the memories,

And each of them

Hurts uniquely.
