The waltzes and dances Sor composed for four-handed fortepiano reflect a time when dancing was a matter of great interest for London society, a social sphere Sor frequented both as a voice, guitar and piano tutor and as a performer at private concerts. Both the waltzes and the sonata are dedicated to ’ladies’. Such is the case of Mlle. Rehausen (Duet and 2nd set of waltzes), and the four Paget sisters, dedicatees of 3rd and 4th sets and habitués of society balls to whom Sor also dedicated the quadrille sets Les Favorites des Salons and Les Choisies for solo piano. The young ladies’ maternal grandmother, Sarah, Lady Jersey, dedicatee of a set of waltzes for fortepiano, was a leading hostess of society balls, and is attributed with introducing French quadrilles, which would become so fashionable in London.
The music in these pieces seems to have been personalized according to the talents of the dedicatees. In general, Sor follows the criteria of a refined taste supported by a command of classical structure (three-part, ABA) and harmony and features of romanticism (melodic lyricism, popular airs, chords to create tension, etc.) which he knows how to pull out just in the moment of greatest effect, savoir faire and a vast natural talent.
