    My review of this music is not as one who plays it, but one who listens to it being played. It is a lovely piece with a variety of styles which I imagine gives a student good practise, but the nicest part is that it has a wonderful melody which...

    continues to run through your head after it ends. I was not even certain of the actual title, but the clip of the music being played ensured that it was, indeed, the piece I was seeking. My mother had played it as a recital piece when she was fifteen which would have been in 1924. It was one of her favourite pieces and became one of mine as I listened to her play it. She died over thirty years ago and we never found her original sheet music which had the subtitle First Valse. I recently purchased the sheet music so that my grandaughter, who is eighteen and well advanced in music, would learn it and I could once again hear it and reminisce.
