"Michel Dalberto listens to the pianist play a set of pieces by Maurice Ravel, ""Les Valses Nobles et Sentimentales."" The master begins by explaining that this piece is a set of eight waltzes which Maurice Ravel composed in 1911. Then, on the day of the premiere, the public was asked who they thought the composer was, but the question stumped everyone.
Later, the master emphasizes that the most important beat on the waltz is the first, which is important for the performance. Dalberto also highlights the significance of the Viennese waltz.
