Mariage d'amour (English: Marriage of Love) is a piece of French solo piano music, composed by Paul de Senneville in 1979, and first performed by the pianist Richard Clayderman from his album "Lettre À Ma Mère" in 1979.[2] Later, pianist George Davidson performed this piece of music from his album "My Heart Will Go On" with a slightly different version.[3] This version is sometimes erroneously attributed to Frédéric Chopin as "Spring Waltz" because of an upload on YouTube with the wrong title, which had reached over 103 million views.[4][5] As of March 2019, several new copies with that erroneous title are available on YouTube, and one of them has reached over 100 million views.[6]

Composition[edit]

The piece was written in the key of G minor. Having a tempo of around 72 bpm, the time signature changes several times, starting in 4/4, then moving on to 5/4 and 3/4, and then back to 4/4. It has a chord progression of Gm–Cm–F–B–D.
