Brahms Waltz in A major Op 39 No 15
Even though the whole piece is marked piano (soft), in each section, the volume is built up and varies in intensity. In the last section, the register differs in that there are many more high notes and flourishes than in the other sections. This waltz is the last in the set.
Brahms wrote three versions of this piece – the original, the simplified, and the four-hands version. This piece should sound graceful and sweet. One thing that was hard to learn in this piece was the 16th notes with the 4th and 5th fingers because it would always be out of tempo.
Every time I listen to this piece, I imagine a big castle with lots of flowers in the field.
