F# minor, not A major, but there’s no option for that here. Also known as Mazurka des Petites Fleurs.
Re: Miriam’s ‘Waltz’ (rather than mazurka)
This doesn’t read well as a mazurka in my ears, feet, and general sense. On Zan McLeod’s recording "Highland Soul", track 7, it’s listed as a waltz, and that makes more sense… However, the ‘author’ to this tune, Myriam De Bonte, does choose to associate it by name as "Mazurka dans les petites fleurs", and you can catch a listen here:
Ensamble Transatlántico de Folk Chileno / Transatlantic Chilean Folk Ensemble - Mazurka (Live Audio)
Recorded live at Garvald Edinburgh - Orwell Arts, on October 19th, 2013
Music: "Mazurka dans les petites fleurs", by Myriam De Bonte
It’s a lovely ‘modern’ tune, interesting, sweet, but it still doesn’t quite make it in my ears and senses as one for that particular tradition of dance, but it is a nice ‘listening’ piece…
Musicians: Johan Herskind (Denmark), Tomás del Real (Chile), Myriam De Bonte (Belgium), Žof Ka (Czech Republic), Angelika Hudler (Austria), Ernesto Calderón (Chile)
Sound: Ricardo Peña Said - Said Records
"Miriam’s Waltz" ~ by Zan McLeod
Though linked to, two recordings in this database, I’ve just managed to chase up a listen and the tune "Miriam’s Waltz" is a completely different tune from the one transcribed here… It would be interesting to hear where this alternate title "Miriam’s" came from?
