Walzer, S208a
circa 1823, in A major

Walzer S208a  [1'05]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The little Waltz in A major was published in 1825 but had been written in some form by early 1823 because it was used that year in a ballet, Die Amazonen, cobbled together from a variety of sources by von Gallenberg. It was printed in England in 1832 in the version for piano, but the earlier edition contained various alternative instrumentations. In any event, the tiny piece is really just an album leaf.
