Originally, Camille Saint-Saëns created this work for piano in 1877 under the title 'Etude en form de Valse,' Op.52/6. In 1901, Ysaye reworked this piece for violin and piano and published it as 'Caprice d'après l'Etude en forme de Valse de Saint-Saëns.' Ysaÿe created a veritable masterpiece for violin, far more popular now than the original piano version. It has taken its rightful place in the virtuoso violin literature. This work is on the concert and recorded repertory of virtually every major violinist and a compulsory work at most major competitions.
