Heart of the Rose was dedicated to Miss Elsie Metzel of Baltimore, Maryland. It is a pleasant suite of two romantic waltzes with an 8-bar introduction and a coda which has elements of the first waltz. Predictably, the cover of the original sheet music shows a tasteful array of roses whilst the title employs hearts as inverted commas. Was Sadie Koninsky commissioned to compose an unusual love token for Miss Metzel as an engagement or Valentine's Day present? Who knows?
Heart of the Rose was published by Edw. M. Koninsky & Bros Music Co., Troy, New York, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
