Giselle Galos (commonly known as C. Galos) was an obscure 19th century pianist and composer, born in France. Very little is known about her; she didn't perform in public, and mainly published her works under the name "C. Galos" and no one knew if they were a woman or man. Some earlier works were found however, with the name "Madmoiselle Giselle Galos" or "Giselle Galos", therefore confirming they were written by a woman. The majority of her works are salon pieces for piano, such as Le Lac de Côme.
This piece is a very typical salon piece; it starts with an arpeggiated line in the left hand, before a pleasing and sentimental melody comes in. It makes no grand musical statements, nor does it have any innovative harmonic work, but is pleasing nonetheless. The work lays well on the piano, and is short and sweet. It makes for a fun piece to enjoy yourself, or perhaps in the company of friends.
Sadly, we can't find any recordings of this work. Hopefully that changes soon!
