The Belford Waltz–solo

Commissioned by the American Composers Forum in honor of Elinor Watson Bell.

Program Note

Elinor Watson Bell was one of the Twin Cities’ principal arts patrons, a fine pianist herself and a true music lover.

Belford has been orchestrated, as the opening number in Suite Populaire,
