The Timecrafters: Perpetual Waltz 華爾兹





One of the big categories of music is for dancing.
During the early 19th Century, when the waltz first came to prominence, it was very much a ballroom dance and not much else. Yet with the development of Romantic music, especially through Chopin and Johann Strauss, the waltz became more of an emblem, to the point that in modern society the waltz’s emblematic meaning has more relevance than its actual function as a dance. By tradition, cities across the world including Vienna and Hong Kong celebrate the New Year by having a concert of waltzes, but the question remains: how did the waltz acquire such an emblematic significance?
