Joys of Spring Waltz
by Adam Geibel arranged by D.K. Fackler             
$ 6.50   (violin, viola and harp)
            Our original instrumentation of oboe, horn and harp was for a concert program where the audience was not used to "formal, buttoned up concerts". During Geibel's lifetime, parlor music was very popular and within that genre, “waltz-songs” became a staple. The Joys of Spring Waltz is typical of this form and was published by Geibel in several versions, piano solo, chamber ensemble, women’s trio and piano/vocal.  This version includes full score/harp (or piano) and horn (with substitute part for viola) and oboe (with substitute parts for flute, violin, or Bb clarinet). Cover art included.  Duration: 5'~
Full score shows horn in F as solo instrument.
