"Valse melancolique No. VIII - le desir eternel" won the 1st prize in Free-Scores Piano Solo Classic contest 2013!
I would like to express my sincere thanks to all supporters and especially to Carlos Márquez, without whose fantastic interpretation this success had never been possible!
I am still overwhelmed by this, because there were just so many other fantastic works on the contest. So I would like to congratulate all participants for taking part in this contest. I listened to all your wonderful music and enjoyed it very much!

This piece is part of a series of 10 Valses melancoliques, composed in 2012. I immediately fell in love with the "Kleine Tänzerin" (little dancer, la petite danseuse) by Berlin paintress Susanne Kühne and composed a couple of Valses melancoliques after I had seen the painting.
