In most waltzes, keeping a steady pulse is of primary interest for the sake of the dancers. In this work, however, the musical ideas and slow tempo trump the need for being absolutely steady. Rubato and markings for rall. appear frequently. Creating long lines and voicing clearly also add to the musicality.  Students should be sure to follow the slight dynamic changes throughout the piece and be aware of the sudden change to forte in the final measures.
