ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Seattle’s Valse Café Orchestra coalesced in 1999 with a singular goal: to win the hearts of good dancers with post-modern renditions of dance hall classics. As the ensemble evolved and its popularity grew, it delved into realms of musical theater and performance art, and today performs in concert as well. Size of the ensemble varies from three to eleven musicians, depending on the scope of performance and budget.

The orchestra’s eclectic repertoire celebrates a romantic mélange of bygone eras and cultures: Paris in the thirties. Hapsburg Vienna. Yiddish melancholy. Gypsy romance. Ragtime Manhattan. And dual genres of swing – the sophisticated urbane variety as well as a few Bob Wills barn-burners.

Disparate worlds indeed – all connected by the mesmerizing cadence of waltz and the exuberant syncopation of swing.

As its name implies, the orchestra typically plays a preponderance of waltzes, but the group’s programs usually feature a mix of swing tunes, Foxtrots, one steps, polkas, two steps and tangos. With more than 400 arrangements in a repertoire that extends from about 1840 to 1950, the ensemble can usually create a program to suit any client’s vision. And every listener’s passion.

“We don’t just play great music exceptionally well,” said our late Artistic Director Susan Balshor. “Our goal always is to create romantic evenings of fantasy and pleasure.”
