    I absolutely love this. My students love it too, except the cello part goes into tenor clef for an entire page. We are middle school.

    I'd never heard of this waltz before, but when I was looking for waltzes I stumbled across it, and it was the most beautiful waltz I've heard yet. My friends and students loved it too. They hadn't heard it either. We loved playing this.
