The Elemore Waltz



This arrangement for Violin Trio is of a melody I composed in 2000 but have arranged for these resources only this year. It can also be found as a Folk Band arrangement along with two other original waltzes. It would be suitable for a “virtual” performance as well as live with social distancing. Violin teachers might also find it useful for ensemble practice.

The melody is retained by Violin I and, from letter C, the repeat of this melody, an octave higher, could be left at the original pitch to make it easier, if necessary. This will create interesting textures as, at times, the melody will be within the overall sound.

Having recorded the waltz at a gentle, lyrical tempo, it might be preferred to play it just a little faster.
