A Majestic Waltz
The character of Brahms’s Waltz No.4 reminds me of something grand and spectacular. It is majestic and reminds me of looking into a huge ornately decorated room, with large open spaces for sound to echo off of. The dynamics on the two note slurs make it feel like you’re looking around and realizing how much space is around you. Later, when the piece is building, it sounds like something arrives majestically, like a lion roaring. I hope you enjoy the piece as much as I do.
