Summer's Waltz


A beautiful waltz played by its composer, Eliza Mette, from Cape Elizabeth, Maine, with Kimberley Fraser at the piano. Eliza made up this tune for her friend Summer, another young and talented musician. Eliza generously took the time (from doing her homework) to record it for this collection. When she went away to college, I missed hearing her play. I am happy to say that she is still playing her beloved fiddle and composing other tunes. Thank you, Eliza: keep playing and composing.
