Composed by Andy Statman.
Nice transcription. This is a new tune written by the wonderful mandolinist Andy Statman.
Flatbush Waltz was on an album that Andy Statman released in 1980.It’s a waltz in the Klezmer tradition.
On the 11th November 2004 I saw Henry Sears play this at a gig in Somerset. With his find command of technique he used high positions on the fiddle a lot, as a Klezmer fiddler doubtless would. Henry has also recorded it, but it is on a "EP" cd (just 4 tunes) that he and Jenny Crook (harp) . This EP isn’t generally available, but it can be purchased at their gigs, and probably through their website, which I have today posted in Links (Music Groups) as "Jenny Crook and Henry Sears".
Very neat waltz
This is played on Itzhak Perlman’s CD In the Fiddler’s House. I really enjoy this waltz. Klezmer music is Awesome!
We play this with the Forest Flowers ( metsakukkia )/The flatbush first.
It goes down really well at our sessions.
Horseplay also play this waltz, on Northumbrian pipes.
Also recorded with Bouzouki, guitar, and fiddle, on Tickle Harbour’s "The Brule Boys in Paris" (1991), now out of print. The group, from Newfoundland, is no longer together to my knowledge. It’s a beautiful waltz.
Setting from somewhere or other,Gm arpeggio I missed out stuck in between the 2 octaves.

Flatbush Waltz was 13 track on an album "Siedem" by polish musicians "Rzeszów Klezmer Band"
A japanese version with verses !
Transcribed this to Em from a recording found online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOys7cU_LeI. The description there claims it was "Interpreted by Massel Klezmorim & Lutz Elias-Cassel".
Lovely friendly session version of the Flatbush Waltz on Patrick Walker Trio’s Album
flute/whistle friendly version
Re: Flatbush : Breton version
I advise you the excellent version of this air by the Breton group "Archetype", (consisting only of bowed instruments: violins, cello and double bass). They realised a recording in 1989 produced by "CoopBreizh".
