Emile Waldteufel (1837-1915) is a French Romantic composer little known to the general public. At the conservatory, he was a classmate of Jules Massenet and Georges Bizet. He is known for his dance music (he was director of the dance music of the imperial court of Napoleon III), the two most famous of which are the waltzes “Amour et Printemps”, and the waltz “Les patineurs”, which we invite you to discover here…

If the music is very pretty, please excuse us in advance for the few photos broadcast during it! This will at least have the merit of helping you remember the name of the waltz 🙂
