originally from sweden. Learned this waltz now more than 20 years ago from Betty Petterson, lovely german/swedish harpist now living and playing in Freiburg
“Muistoja Karpaateilta” / “Emma” ~ waltz
Key signature: a minor

See comments for Kurt Franke’s transcript, these two played as a set…
Var det Du eller Var det Jag
I learned it many years ago in Sweden in Am as "Var det du eller var det jag" (was it I or was it you?) and I think there were words to it. Kanske kan de svenska medlemmarna skicka in texten.
Now that’s more like it… Kurt’s version is in A Dorian. So, how about a transcript as you know it LongNote? The Swedish and Finnish waltzes I’ve played have tended to have more to them than this…
“Ølland Vals / Waltz” ~ taking it a bit lower ~
