This is a melodic and charming little waltz in a minor key. It is moderately easy to play with only two chords forming the basis for most of the left hand accompaniment until the melody takes over in bars 9 to 16. Remember to lean on the melody and keep the right hand chords (thirds) very soft throughout this section. From bars 25 to 32, special care should be taken with the left hand fingering to keep the scale passages smooth. These measures are the most difficult in the piece but if they are practiced slowly with the correct fingerings, they can be brought up to speed fairly easily.
Like most of the waltzes in this series, the performer can choose his tempo, remembering only to keep the slight stress on the first note of each measure … the “waltz” pulse.
