- Note From The Composer -
While writing The Farewell Waltz, I imagined it being played at a dinner party back in the early 1910's before a family member left on a trip overseas. I tried to capture the sense of anxious and nervous excitement someone would have felt as he/she leaves family to chase dreams abroad. The key I chose to write in is B flat which has a warm color and a pensive tone. Throughout the piece, I relied on the sharp 4 scale degree (Lydian) to build a sense of mild tension as it is heard over the tonic before a release and quick resolution. Enjoy!
