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.

Every time I listen to this piece, I imagine a big castle with lots of flowers in the field.

    Hello, Yash. It is such an enjoyable and relaxing presentation. Thanks for sharing your very gentle and soft melody presentation. I feel like I was lying on a swing, looking at the beautiful greenery, breathing a fresh and cool breeze. I feel relaxed. Such a good melody to my ear. Well done.

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
