Notes from the Composer:
DW950 - Backstage Waltz:

Standard: Grade 3
Approximate playing time: 1 mins 20 sec

This waltz is written in Eb major and starts with a four-bar introduction. This is followed by the next eight bars which take the treble melody through a tuneful dance, with phrasing, slight tempo changes, and dynamic variations. An eight-bar short middle section introduced both major and minor bass chords.

This is followed by a reinstatement of the melody, which leads into a slightly unorthodox ending in that the waltz momentarily turns into a foxtrot in 4/4, before the final bar in 3/4.
