Uuno Klami: Valses lentes et amoureuses for string orchestra and piano

Uuno Klami (1900-1961) was an acclaimed Finnish orchestral composer whose works in other genres also deserve to be known. Valses lentes et amoureuses consists of two waltzes and dates from 1932. It is one of the most graceful pieces of salon music ever composed by Uuno Klami. The first waltz, Con passione, begins in subtly sensual, veiled, passionate mood, like an invitation to a dance. The second movement begins with a languorously erotic and chromatic introduction leading to a livelier Wienerlied in a G-major landscape.
