Mariage d’Amour — The Story
Some day in November last year I was at my job listening to some classical music while working. YouTube’s autoplay decided what I should hear… Suddenly some melody that I never heard before appeared, it was awesome. I opened my browser to see that this was the so called Spring Waltz by Frédéric Chopin.
Spring Waltz… really?
I was pretty confused. The fact that I haven’t heard about it while it was a piece by Chopin seemed unlikely — and it wasn’t even a waltz. I later found out that the credits to Chopin was a huge mistake — the real piece was written by Paul de Senneville and the exact version was arranged by George Davidson. Read more out about this very widespread misunderstanding in my post “Did Chopin ever write a Spring Waltz?”.
I was in no doubt that this was a piece I should play since it fits perfect with my genre and playing style. Now it’s one of my most popular videos — thanks! Listen to my performance in the player above.
