Ludwig van Beethoven was crucial in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras and remains one of the best loved and influential composers of all time. He has always been my favourite and this finds him in wistful mood!

Ah but…. I hear you say….

There is doubt in academic circles as to whether or not he actually "Gertrude's Dream Waltz" as it is a waltz and doesn't fit with Beethoven's other compositions at the time. It is unknown in what year it was composed, although it was published in 1852 by Schuberth in Leipzig, Germany.

Come on folks…. Beethoven was pioneering and pushing the boundaries of music his whole life and was capable of any musical experiment he chose! I certainly prefer to think of Beethoven in a wistful mood penning this for some society lady he liked….

My version is about grade 6/7 level, so playable for many good guitarists. I transposed it from the original B flat to accommodate the wide range you would expect from a piano solo and I altered the time signature to 3/4 from 3/8 for simplicity. Other than that I have remained reasonably close to the accepted version within the parameters of what the guitar can achieve and still sound musical!

If you wish to avoid page turns, parts are available as separate TAB and notation….

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.
