Solo / SB / Grade 2-3


This composition is a standard waltz (3/4 time), with an eight-bar introduction. The piece is written in D major. Its lilting main treble theme is hummable, with phrasing that provides the structure of the dance. The piece later morphs into G major in the second section, before returning to D major. The basses (in single-note chord notation) are kept simple, and intended mainly for rhythm keeping; the most used are D major, G major, and A7th, plus an occasional E minor. The piece helps the performer to read notes above the treble clef, but the treble range of the whole piece is one-and-a-half octaves.
