“La Valse Du Capitaine” is a solo piano piece that perfectly encapsulates the musical poetry and style of Sophie Riviere, a pianist and composer from the island of Noirmoutier in France. Her music is deeply influenced by the maritime world, having spent her childhood surrounded by sea stories told by her father, a long-distance merchant marine captain and music enthusiast. This composition embodies the fusion of neoclassicism and minimalism, transporting the listener on a nostalgic journey through childhood memories and the natural beauty of the island.
