Caprice d’après L’Etude en Forme de Valse

Recorded April 2018

Virtuoso Nathan Milstein called Eugène Ysaÿe the “tsar” and was generally known as “The King of the Violin”. Many prominent composers dedicated major works to him and Ysaÿe himself arranged Saint-Saëns’s Étude en forme de valse, which had originally been written for solo piano. Today Iskandar Widjaja performs this piece.
