Here is a cheerful little waltz that evokes the idyllic character of a beautiful May day in the countryside. The principal theme of this piece (measures 1-24) came to me on one such day and I developed the rest later on. My major influences here are Strauss and Chopin. I am merely a dwarf standing on the shoulders of renowned musical giants such as these.

When performing this piece, pay careful attention to staccato, tenuto and accent marks as well as pedal indications. In sections marked "cantabile" or "espress.", the tempo should be varied just slightly (poco rubato), whereas the section marked "marcato" should be trotted out with military precision. Chord names indicate the predominant harmonies. The fingering is offered as a general guide; actual fingering preferences will vary somewhat from one performer to the next.

Note that when repeating the section on page 4 (measures 66-83), only the treble notes are to be played an octave higher than written; the bass notes are to be played exactly as written both times.

If you would like an easier to play version of this piece, check out my "May Waltz (Easy Version)" in the related scores above.


Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
