Featured in Antietam Cable's documentary "A Soldier's View"
Garden Waltz is comprised of charming American and European miniatures from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Gathered from the online archives of the United States Library of Congress and journals, this lighthearted treasury of salon music showcases the era's penchants for waltzes and includes a selection of arrangements, character pieces and etudes. It offers a delightful cross section of music that may have been played by skilled, amateur musicians as entertainment during the late 19th century. The album was a home recording project initiated by a request for music to be used for the Antietam Cable documentary, A Soldier's View. Although not a studio quality recording, it is special for the pleasant collection of works.
Available as a physical PRO CD-R disk or MP3 digital download. Pro CD-R disks may not play in some older CD players.
