Old-Fashioned Love Waltz

Old-Fashioned Love Waltz

Love and courtship, 19th Century style. Herein is an attempt to reproduce an authentic Romantic-era valse in 2010, one evocative of the tender love of a young couple full of hopes and dreams.

Written in the key of F-major, this warm and charming piece employs the well-known A-B-A, structure, with variations in the final “A” theme. The first transition employs a arpeggiated hemeola to F-minor and then shifts up to its enharmonic complement in the ebullient B-theme’s key, A-flat major.

This work does contain some haunting passages – a homage to that mighty poet of the Romantic era in classical piano, F. Chopin – yet remains an ode to the tenderness of innocent youthful love.

It might be very useful in a period film from the 19th Century in an appropriate context.
