Program Note

Peter Myers commissioned this humorous concert waltz to play with his wife, Carla. In a series of dance episodes, a festive, cheerful mood is followed by playful, then songful themes. After a pause, the partners dance tentatively in an odd meter, a evocation of the Myers’s dance at their wedding reception in which the band played a “waltz” in 4/4 meter! But development takes the pair to new heights, and the coda finds them waltzing toward the tonic, E-flat, a struggle that is ultimately—and joyfully—resolved.

The parts are of equal prominence, and contain some 2-part polyphony, but the writing is within the grasp of middle-grade players.
