Saarland Waltz

This work was commissioned for a wedding by a lovely couple who wanted to waltz! Though Johann Strauss is the obvious inspiration, it is something of a caricature of the cosmopolitan experience of even the small towns I experienced in Germany during the summer of 2015.

Like the tango, it is a showpiece of moderate difficulty but has more charm than fire. Everything in it is very "cellistic" and satisfying.
