Valse Venice it is an attractive waltz that fairly tinkles along. It has a quasi-sonata form of AABBACA with a 4-bar introduction whereby the pleasing melodies provide an opportunity for the treble voices to display their capabilities. As an adaptation for recorder sextet it is not particularly easy as lightning alternations are called for, especially in the introduction, and, as with so many Scott compositions, the upper registers are much in demand. A rewarding piece to master however!
The cover of the original sheet music predictably shows a gondola passing beneath a Venetian bridge.
Valse Venice was published by Stark Music Co, St. Louis, Missouri, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
