By Undine Hornby, named after her favourite brand of hot Hungarian paprika. Gordon Potts wrote a dance of the same name in the early 1990s to fit the tune.

Rozsa, X:2

I play this tune in E minor on a D/G box. It works very well and does not sound to high. Sometimes and depending on the tune top ‘b’ can sound a bit piercing but here it is part of a decoration and is O.K. I feel.
This tune goes well with “Inisheer”. I must admit that I might play “Inisheer” a little faster than some people but if “Rozsa” is played very slowly then I think both work together quite well. I do have to pull “Inisheer” back though as it can become quite easy to speed. I feel that some people play “Inisheer” too slow and it can become a morbid droll. It does depend on the context I suppose but I use these two together for a very languid and somewhat sleezy little dance number by the name of “Rosza”.

I think this is really much more a Mazurka than a Waltz. Either way, it is another lovely tune by the much missed Undine Hornby.
