El Diablo Suelto. Heraclio Fernández

“El Diablo Suelto” (The Loose Devil) is a Venezuelan waltz composed by Heraclio Fernandez (1851-1886). He is a great example of nineteenth century Venezuelan piano music.

The waltz that I present here is an arrangement made by me of the first edition. It was published on March 19, 1878 in the newspaper of the same name “El Diablo Suelto”.  The composer dedicated this famous waltz to the editors of this short-lived newspaper.
