Les Patineurs or ’The Skaters’ Op. 183 is a waltz byEmile Waldteufel. It was composed in 1882 and was inspired by the Cercle des Patineurs or ’Rink of Skaters’ at the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. His introduction to the waltz can be likened to the poise of a skater and the glissando notes invoke scenes of a wintry atmosphere. The other themes that follow are graceful and swirling, as if to depict a ring of skaters in their glory. It was dedicated to Ernest Coquelin who was the younger brother of two celebrated actor brothers of the Comedie Francaise.
