Description

Painting: In the style of John William Waterhouse La fé d'amour: "As well as his two Violin Concertos, Raff wrote a Suite for violin and orchestra and this concert-piece, which is the earliest of all his concerted works having been written in 1854, whilst working with Liszt in Weimar. It was one of Raff's earliest orchestral works and for a time was quite popular, receiving several performances. The love fairy of the title is depicted by the solo violin in this attractive but perhaps overlong work." (texts from Raff.org © 2009 Mark Thomas)
