A typically melancholy waltz, of which this composer was a true master. One can almost touch the sweet pathos in the melodic and harmonic content of this piece, with the string quartet being a most suitable medium for performance.

For this string quartet/orchestra project, which includes the above associated score, and the Valse op. 40 No 9, I worked from a book of Tschaikowsky piano pieces given to me by my grandmother. Herbert Smith, a son and pianist, and uncle who I never knew, died aged 19 during the 1914/18 war. The Tschaikowsky Album has served me well through my musical life - it is a Bosworth publication of Leizig dated 1896, and shows a remarkable sketch of the composer with a signature below using the above spelling. I reproduce this spelling then, and dedicate these string quartet arrangements to Herbert Smith.
