Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Album for the Young, Op 39, is music for children to play. Schumann wrote his Album for the Young as a relaxation from labour on his opera Genoveva, and Tchaikovsky composed his in the wake of Eugene Onegin. Not a composer normally inspired by the piano, he could nearly always think of a good tune. Maman and the Waltz are respectively numbers 3 and 9 of the Album’s sequence of twenty-four pieces.

L’Album pour enfants, op.39 de Piotr Ilitch Tchaïkovsky a vraiment pour vocation d’être interprété par des enfants. À l’image de Schumann, qui écrivit son Album pour la jeunesse pour se détendre de son opéra Genoveva, Tchaïkovsky composa son Album pour enfants juste après Eugène Onéguine. Bien que généralement peu inspiré par le piano, il parvint presque toujours à trouver une belle mélodie. Maman et la Valse sont les troisième et neuvième pièces de l’Album, qui en totalise vingt-quatre.

Peter Iljitsch Tschaikowskis Kinderalbum op. 39 ist zur Ausführung durch Kinder gedacht. Schumann schrieb sein Album für die Jugend als Erholung von der Arbeit an seiner Oper Genoveva, und Tschaikowski komponierte sein Album im Gefolge von Eugen Onegin. Er ließ sich als Komponist in der Regel nicht vom Klavier inspirieren, doch fiel es ihm nie schwer, eine gute Melodie zu erfinden. Maman und der Walzer sind die Nummern 3 bzw. 9 in der Abfolge von vierundzwanzig Stücken im Album.
